Walters - Charles - leg cut off

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Friday, 30 September, 1898
Charles Walters, of New Ross, a brakeman on the Midland, met with a sad accident Wednesday at Ladoga. It was toward evening and he attempted to board his train after it was in motion. It was his purpose to step on the boxing of the car but in some way he missed and planted his foot squarely on the rail. The car passed over it and the member was cut off. The bystanders came promptly to the young man’s aid and he was given every possible attention. He will recover unless inflammation sets in.
