Dr. N. J. Senn on M’Kinley’s Hurts


Says Such Wounds Are Dangerous but Not Necessarily Fatal.

     Dr. N. J. Senn, in discussing the reported condition of the president, said: “I know three of the physicians reported in the Daily News as in attendance on the president. Those I know are Drs. Mynter, Mann and Lee. They are good men. Under their care he will have every chance for recovery that there is under the circumstances. Of course I cannot say what the probabilities of recovery may be, not knowing the nature of the wounds except in a general way.
     “The abdominal wound is the more dangerous of the two. Recoveries are entirely possible from wounds in the abdomen and breast. Of course I have extracted many bullets from the chest and have had many patients recover from them. The wounds, while extremely dangerous, need not be regarded as certainly fatal. Surgeons in all parts of the world will await with deep concern the outcome of this struggle with possible fatality, and earnestly hope that a victory may be accomplished on the momentous occasion.”
