Santa Ana, Cal., Sept. 4. - Mrs. Florence Seidell, of this city, narrowly escaped death today while flying her aeroplane over Newport bay. The machine dropped into the bay. Caught in the wires, she was thrown under the water. Rescuers in motor boats extricated her after she had been submerged for three minutes. She was taken ashore and resusitated."
