LOOMIS, William

    Cambria Freeman, 19 Nov 1880, Page 3, Contributed by Lisa Baker

A fifteen-year-old lad named Wm. Loomis, of Mt. Union, Huntingdon county, jumped from a freight engine in charge of his uncle, Mr. John Long, in the Altoona yard, about 8 o'clock on Monday evening last and alighted immediately in front of a shifting engine on the adjoining rack, and either fell or was knocked down and run over, the wheels cutting off his head and scattering his brains along the track. His right arm was also terribly crushed, and death as a matter of course resulted instantly.
