April 26, 1930
One of King Alexander of Yugoslavia's "gigantic guardsmen" recently received an "indefinite leave of absence" and a reward of $1,000 for having "quite inadvertently saved the life of 2-year-old Prince Tomislav," who is the second son of the king, reports the New York Times.
Prince Tomislav was playing in his mother, Queen Marie's apartments on the second floor of the palace, when "suddenly he fell from a window." A sentry, who was passing "at the moment," received the "full weight of the child on his shoulders." Little Tomislav clutched the guard around the neck, and "slid to the ground unhurt." The "burly guardsman" was, however, "knocked unconscious and crumpled to the ground."
