The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
International (Ferry), accident, 15 Oct 1873

Full Text

      Last evening a young man named Charles McCollum, residing at Dunnville, Ont. was terribly injured at the stm. INTERNATIONAL's dock at fort Erie. He was lifting something into a car on a side track, and failed to notice the Grand Trunk train, which was being backed down to the steamer to cross the river. He was struck, the wheels passing over both legs. The sufferer was removed to the Sister's Hospital, and it was found that both limbs were so badly crushed as to render amputation necessary. This was done by Drs. Miner and Obrien. At last account McCullom's condition was very precarious.
