|FATAL FALL FROM A TRESTLE|
A Cambria Brakeman Receives Injuries Which Cause His Death
About half-past 5 o'clock last evening Abraham Miller, a brakeman on the Cambria Iron Company's Railway, met with an accident which caused his death three hours later. He was on a car on the trestle at the blast furnaces when the car jumped the track and he was thrown off. He fell from the trestle twenty-five or thirty feet to the ground alighting on his feet and falling backward. His head struck a cindor and the skull was fractured, concussion of the brain resulting.
He was taken to the Cambria Hospital in an unconscious condition and remained so, not withstanding the ministrations of the doctors, until 9 o'clock, when he expired. His remains were this morning taken charge of by Undertaker Henderson and removed to deceased's late home in Morrellville. Mr. Miller leaves a wife, but no children. He was about twenty-three years of age. The funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will be made at Decker's.
