Baasch, Henry (fatal accident - 12 NOV 1914)

Last Thursday evening Henry Baasch was instantly killed by the afternoon passenger train a short distance east of Granton. It is stated that the young man and his brother were walking east along the track and seeing the approaching train had dared each other as to which could stay on the track the longest. The glare of the electric headlight seemed to have blinded Henry and he was struck by the train and killed instantly.
