Asleep When Death Came
Charles A. Shively Sat On Track And Was Struck By Train
Had Been On Fish Trip
Exhausted From Loss Of Sleep He Sat Down on Track And Was Struck--
Parents Reside At Catasauqua
Charles A. Shively, who resided near the Bixler-Jones foundry between Freemansburg and Bethlehem, met sudden death Sunday morning at 4:30 o'clock on the Central Railroad of New Jersey tracks. He was employed by the Bethlehem Steel Company and worked on Friday night and was through then at the shops until Monday morning. He did not sleep on Saturday and on Saturday evening started with some friends on a fishing trip to the Lehigh near Freemansburg. After fishing during the night Shively started for home. He sat down to rest on the outside edge of the sills of the cast-bound track and fell asleep.
The engineer of the freight saw the huddled figure of a man sitting close to the rails, his head bent over in his hands and sounded the whistle. The figure failed to move, though the shrill blasts blew loud and long. It was impossible to stop the train. Death was instantaneous. A deep cut back of the right ear, the back of the skull split, and a broken shoulder blade were the fatal injuries. The body was carried to the Central Railroad station and later brought by Undertaker Weirbach, of South Bethlehem, to the late home of the deceased, where Coroner Schleicher held a view yesterday morning.
The deceased was the son of Peter and Eva Green Shively, of Catasauqua, and was born in Lower Saucon township on August 7, 1875. He was married on September 17, 1889, to Miss Kate Cope, who survives him, as does a little son, Roland. His parents, three sisters, Mrs. Milton Serfoss, of Freemansburg; Mrs. James Kratzer and Mrs. Elmer Trine, of Catasauqua, and three brothers, Edward, Herbert and William, of Catasauqua, also survive. The funeral will take place on Wednesday afternoon at 1:30. Interment will be made at Catasauqua.
