Robert Bailey, a carpenter of Valley City, in attempting to step off the train while in motion, slipped on the icy steps and fell under the wheels which crushed one of his legs. It was necessary for the injured member to be amputated below the knee. Mr. Bailey's condition is very serious. He carried insurance, so his family, consisting of a wife and three children, will be well taken care of.
