Girl Dies In Effort To Save Young Brother

Minot, N.D., Aug. 5—Ida, nine year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charley Boisch of Sawyer, two stations east of Minot was instantly killed and her two year old brother, whom she was attempting to save, suffered internal injuries from which physicians believe he will not recover, when they were struck by the Soo line train number 106 eastbound.

The little boy had wandered on to the railroad tracks and was playing there when the train came into sight. The girl rushed to his assistance, but the train struck them both, hurling them to the side of the track and inflicting a crushed skull to the girl, fractured legs and other bruises and cuts.
