Former Utica and Ilion Man Underwent Terrifying Experience


Fireman James Dunn Disobeyed Orders and Saved President of Mercantile Deposit and Another from Death

New York, January 10, 1912 --- William Giblin, president of the Mercantile Safe Deposit Company, who underwent such a terrifying experience in the Equitable Building fire yesterday morning and whose rescue was one of the most marvelous pieces of work ever accomplished by firemen, was reported in good condition at the Hudson Street Hospital this morning.

The only danger to be feared is pneumonia. However, no symptoms had been discovered, and as Mr. Giblin is a vigourous young man, it is hoped that he may escape.
