We had our tragedies, too. There was a rule forbidding persons to ride the tramline. Some took the chance. Two men decided to steal a ride in the buckets from Nelson to the mine. The tram stopped and there they hung, between towers, high in the air. One jumped, thinking the deep snow would save him from injury, but he broke both legs. The other went along the cable , hand over hand, to a tower and reached the ground in safety.
