SAVED THE TRAIN – But in the Heroic Act Lost His Own Life
Akron, Ohio, Feb. 22 – Michael McDonough, aged 50, discovered a railroad rail which had been placed across the track just outside the city limits yesterday. The train was in sight and he had only time to lift one end and drag it from the track when the engine struck the other end and dashed it against his head, crushing his skull like an eggshell. The engine and cars did not leave the track. [The Vernon Courier (Lamar County AL), Feb. 27, 1890 - VM - Sub by FoFG]
