When I look through the old newspapers on the NLA website I sometimes put something random into the search engine to see if there are any articles about that subject. Yesterday I wondered if anyone had actually been killed by a falling piano and very quickly found that a piano was involved in many surprising incidents. Reading them made me realize that if you are in a room with a piano you are never safe. This article from The Argus 17th Jan 1952 shows that you are not even safe if there is a piano in a nearby vehicle. His story would always win an ‘I’ve got the best scar’ competition.
