Albuquerque, NM Railroad Shop Accident, May 1920

MANUEL LUCERO IS KILLED AT THE SANTA FE SHOPS

Manuel D. Lucero, a car repair man at the Santa Fe shops, was killed yesterday when a boiler which was being moved by a large wrecking crane, bent the arm of the crane and struck him on the head. He died almost instantly. He leaves a wife and five children, father, mother, three brothers and one sister, besides a host of friends to mourn his death.

Manuel D. Lucero was born thirty-eight years ago in Los Duranes, N. M., but had made his home in Old Albuquerque most of the time. For the past two years he has been in the employ of the Santa Fe railroad.

Funeral services will be held Thursday morning at the San Felipe de Neri church. Burial will be in Santa Barbara cemetery.
