The defendant’s wife knocked the plaintiff down with an axe and the plaintiff caught an axe that was aimed at the defendant. This saved the defendant’s life, but badly injured the plaintiff. Defendant then orally promised to pay the plaintiff her damages, but did not pay more than a small sum. The plaintiff sued for the remainder of the promised payment.
