54-year-old electrician George Metesky aka The Mad Bomber is declared "hopeless and incurable both mentally and physically" and committed in Matteawan Hospital for the Criminally Insane, Beacon, New York, United States.

Expected to live only a few weeks due to his advanced tuberculosis Metesky had to be carried into the hospital. After a year and a half of treatment, his health had improved, and a newspaper article written fourteen years later described the 68-year-old Metesky as "vigorous and healthy looking".
