Shocking accident at Sandhills Station in Liverpool

February 8, 1892
A frightful accident occurred at the Sandhills Station of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, at Liverpool, to Abraham Clarkson, of Woodbine-grove, Liverpool, who was cut to pieces by a Manchester express as it passed through the station last evening, at six o’clock. The deceased, with his wife and daughter, were about to proceed to Swinton, and having obtained tickets proceeded to the central platform. Here the father left his wife and daughter, when suddenly the Manchester and Liverpool express dashed through. The deceased had mysteriously disappeared, only to be found in a mangled condition down the line, beyond recognition, save by his wearing apparel. The ambulance was telegraphed for, and the mangled remains conveyed to the Royal Infirmary.
