|Ottawa Citizen 5 December 1871|
A brakesman employed on the Brockville and Ottawa Railway was killed yesterday. He was on top of one of the box cars after leaving Arnprior and, passing under a bridge, about a mile from that village, struck his head against the beam. He was killed instantly. An inquest was held on the body after the train arrived at Sand Point, when a verdict in accordance with the facts was rendered. He was a French Canadian from Lachine where his people reside.
