Newark, NJ Train Accident, July 1872

Another Horror

Late on Saturday night at the same place [Market street depot, in Newark] and in much the same manner, John Hannon, of 118 Market street had both legs horribly mangled. It is alleged that the poor fellow was picked up and cast on the platform and left there for three quarters of an hour, not one of the rail road people making the slightest motion to have him removed to a proper place or to have a surgeon called in A policeman was more humane. He got a vehicle and had him taken to the hospital where he died yesterday afternoon.
