On Wednesday night of last week Mr. Ovid H. Kimble in some way fell from a Coast Line train near Savannah. The train was crossing a trestle in a large swamp at the time of the accident and Mr. Kimble fell in the water 20 feet below. When he reached the bank of the stream he found that he was in a large swamp from which he was unable to extricate himself for a day and night, when he succeeded in attracting the attention of three negroes who got him out and carried him to their cabin, where he remained until Saturday when the negroes succeeded in stopping a train upon which he was carried to Savannah where he is under the care of physicians.
