CHARLES WOODCOCK, a well known brakeman on the New Orleans and Mobile division of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, met with a serious accident yesterday morning about 3:20 near Scranton, Miss. He stepped from the railroad bridge, as he thought only a few inches, but landed 15 feet or more under the bridge and suffered internal injries. He called to the other members of the crew who heard his cries and assisted him to the caboose and rendered all the assistance possible until the train arrived here, about 7:30 o'clock yesterday morning, when he was met by Dr H.T.Inge, surgeon of the road, and taken home in the city ambulance. Woodcock's foot is badly sprained. The members of the train crew say that the escape of Woodcock from instant death is remarkable, as the spot where he fell was covered with rubbish and logs.
