As he tried to re-enter the seat the aeroplane started off and he was thrown to the ground. It dragged him 200 feet and when he released his hold he was badly bruised. Half a dozen mechanics gave chase and were bowled over in succession, three of them being cut and bruised.

AVIATOR FALLS, SLIGHTLY HURT
Chicago Aeroplanist Jumps Into Trolley Wire and Escapes Serious Injury

     Chicago, Illinois - June 29, 1911 - John J. Joyce, an aviator, fell 500 feet in a biplane at Hawthorne park yesterday and escaped with only slight injuries. He broke through five telephone wires, one trolley wire, and a heavy wooden backstop for a baseball diamond. The backstop was wrecked and the biplane literally ground to pieces but Joyce escaped with only a sprained ankle, a scratched face, and possible minor fracture of one of the small bones of the leg.
     Joyce had been in the air only a few minutes when his engine stopped. After the first sharp drop of perhaps forty feet, Joyce succeeded in righting the machine and starting to volplane to the ground, but the angle was too sharp. The machine dashed upon the telephone wires and cut them as if they had been so many pieces of string. It them fell at a changed angle upon the trolley wire, through which no current was running. Just before the biplane hit this wire, Joyce jumped, and fell upon the trolley wire, snapping it in two which broke the force of his fall and he alighted squarely on his feet.
