On Saturday morning, a determined suicide was committed on the Keighley and Worth Valley line. A goods train left Keighley Station for Haworth at 11:55 a.m. When it had reached about midway between Keighley and Ingrow stations, the engine driver observed a man walk on to the line about 40 yards in front of him, lay down and place his neck across the metals with his face downwards. The engine driver whistled, and endeavoured to bring the train to a stand; but in vain, and the engine and four wagons passed over the poor man, severing his head completely from his body. When his remains were picked up, they were found to be those of the person well known in the neighbourhood, his name being Abraham Wildman, aged about 59 years.
