EUROPEAN BOY SCOUT INJURED
30 Foot Fall Down Banking.
BOTH ARMS FRACTURED.

   Noel Rapp, aged 11 years, a member of the Murray Group of Boy Scouts, sustained severe injuries yesterday afternoon, when while playing with other boys at Scandal Point, near Flagstaff House he fell down the banking, a distance of about 30 feet.
   He is now lying in the Government Civil Hospital with both arms fractured and a broken leg.
   The accident occurred shortly after five o'clock when the boys had gathered for a Scouts' meeting. Rapp fell down the banking, and landed spread eagled on the ground below. He was still conscious when picked up.
   First aid was rendered the injured youth, while a European Scoutmaster telephoned for the ambulance.
