AKRON - At the Soapbox Derby time trials held here today, Lazlo Toth, a twelve year old participant in the race suffered a double hernia when he attempted to push his racecar up an incline.
Toth was taken to the Henry Ford Hospital by ambulance, immediately after it happened and was found lying on the ground doubled over.
His parents, who were immediately notified when this happened, expressed surprise that an event which seemed harmless, could in fact turn into a tragedy. "I never expected this to happen," his father glumly observed.
Toth is expected to fully recover, and should be able to participate in next year's Soapbox
Derby, even though he would be at the edge of the age limit.
