Soldier Has Accident

Corporal Austin Had Toes Cut Off Jumping From Moving Train

Enoch M. Austin, corporal in Co H, Seventeenth Infantry Fort Oglethorpe had two of his toes cut off under the wheels of a train here Saturday night. He was asleep on the train and awoke as it pulled out of the station. Realizing that he was being carried past Sanford he jumped from the train and in some manner fell with his foot on the rail, the wheels of the last coach passing over the end of the toes. He was brought to the office of Dr. O. J. Miller, the A.C.L. surgeon who was forced to amputate two of the toes and Austin is able to be carried to (the) home of his wife's parents near here. He was on a visit to his family here when the accident happened to him and his career as a soldier is probably cut short by the removal of his toes. He is a former resident of this city and has been in service several years.
