IVANDIGA, Mike. The Pennsylvania Railroad added two more names to its list of victims in Cambria County between South Fork and Cresson within about two hours this morning. William D. Gonsman, a well-known resident of the vicinity of Cresson and an employee of the railroad company was the last man to meet death. Mike Ivandiga, an Austrian workman in the employ of C. A. Sims & Co., railroad contractors, was the other. The foreigner's head was completely severed from his body. Ivandiga was going to his work on the South Fork-Summerhill "jump-over," just east of South Fork, in which town he boarded. It is said he was stealing a ride on a freight and attempting to get off fell underneath the wheels. His remains were taken in charge by George Brothers, the South Fork undertakers. Mike Ivandiga was forty-two years old and is said to have a wife and two children in the old country.
