My husbands grandfather was reported to have been run over by tram car in 1932. (family story). What really happened was he was drunk, and whilst walking to visit his daughter, to see his new grandson (my hubby) He fell over in the gutter, a man alighting from the tram, picked him up and sent him on his way. He fell over again in the next street, this time he died from injuries he had received in both falls. Joan
