Coughs Up Roll
Buffalo — Robert Ford, 42, recuperated today from an operation for a skull fracture.
Emergency hospital physicians all recuperated from shock and amazement when Ford coughed up a hefty roll of $11 after regaining consciousness following the operation.
Ford, police said, was attacked. They believe the injured man feared robbery and swallowed the money.
