1918 - At the age of 19 years old, Motie was alive when on November 1, an elevated train on the Brooklyn line of the subway - driven by an inexperienced operator because of a strike - tried to navigate a turn at 30mph.

Although in later years they were thought to be innocent, they were anarchists and were convicted of the crime and put to death.
