1907 DY­NA­MITE DE­CI­SION

History Revealed - - TIME CAPSULE NOVEMBER -

Brave rail­way worker Jesús Gar­cía Corona pre­vented a train full of TNT from wip­ing out a small town in the Mex­i­can desert. While he took a break, the 25-year-old saw smoke bil­low­ing from one of the car­riages con­tain­ing dy­na­mite. Rush­ing onto the train and putting it into full-speed re­verse, he got the car a few kilo­me­tres from the town, be­fore the en­tire train ex­ploded – killing him in­stantly.
