Ottawa Citizen 20 May, 1935

Morrisburg, May 18.  Garnet Hutt sectionman on the Canadian National Railway here was instantly killed at noon today when struck by the C.N.R. train, the Maple Leaf Flyer, a short distance east of the local depot.  He was seen by Wesley Smith, gateman at the Ottawa-Morrisburg crossing with whom he had been in conversation shortly before, to drop a basket he had in his hand, wave his arms and fall directly in front of the speeding train as it roared into Morrisburg yards.  It is believed a sudden seizure made him fall.
