Charles A. F. Mclsaac, 44, railway mail clerk, attempted to save Helen M. Elston, 34 from being killed by a train, Boston, Massachusetts, September 21, 1929. As Miss Elston was about to step from a station platform to a track on which a train was approaching at a speed of 10 to 12 m.p.h., Mclsaac stepped forward and grasped her. At that moment Miss Elston was struck by the locomotive and McIsaac was knocked across the platform. He sustained injuries that caused him to be totally disabled for a year. Miss Elston was so seriously injured that she died two days later.
