Levenseat Brick and Fireclay Company, Fauldhouse, West Lothian

26/08/1874 – North British Agriculturist – A lad, named David Gardiner, in the service of Mr Thornton, brick, coal, and lime merchant, at Levenseat, near Callender, met with an accident on Saturday morning which has necessitated the amputation of his arm. He was engaged on the private line of railway leading to the works in unloading some waggons, when, observing one of them moving backwards, he endeavoured to step it by putting a piece of wood before the wheel. He fell forward, and before he could rise the wheel passed over the whole length of his arm and lacerated it fearfully. He was at once sent on to Edinburgh and placed in the Royal Infirmary. In the afternoon Dr Watson amputated the injured limb, and the lad is now doing well.
