William A. Doyle

Park Guard William Doyle succumbed to injuries sustained three days earlier when he was thrown from his horse in West Park.

While on patrol, Guard Doyle noticed a large group of people rushing towards Concourse Lake. This sort of activity usually indicated someone had fallen through the ice. As Guard Doyle attempted to respond to the scene his horse slipped and Guard Doyle was thrown to the ground. He suffered a fractured skull and was taken to Lankenau Hospital where he later died.
