Title
Havelock police car in front of a Bank of North Carolina building
Description
A Havelock police car with an officer inside sits parked in front of a Bank of North Carolina. The photo was originally taken for The Havelock Progress to accompany an article about a train accident. The article tells how two young children, Samantha and Shaniena Tompakov, were nearly killed while playing on the railroad tracks but were saved by the quick thinking of the train’s front end brakeman, Joe Dunn. The youngest child, who was in the middle of the tracks, was ordered to lie down so that she went under the train, while the other child was next to the tracks and escaped with minor injuries. date: May 14, 1982; creator: Edward B.
