This Day In History: 1916-03-27
An employee of the Susquehanna Railroad was narrowly saved from death by the quick action of Kenneth DuVall. The man, who had been drinking, was leaning on the iron gate at the crossing between the two westbound tracks waiting for an eastbound freight to pass. He did not see the Chicago Express, No. 1, coming around the ebdn and would have stepped right in front of it if he had not been dragged away by DuVall.
