This chapter discusses the rescue efforts undertaken at the scene of the New York Express wreckage from 5:30 P.M. until midnight. On the eastern side of Big Sister Creek bridge, villagers waited for the Buffalo and Erie Railroad's relief train packed with city doctors, railroad workers, medical goods, wrecking equipment, and mattresses for the injured. One such doctor was Samuel Wetmore. This chapter considers the recovery of the dead and the transportation of the victims in Angola in the aftermath of the disaster. It also describes the role of Rev. John Chase Lord, in trying to sum up the meaning of, and trying to explain, the Angola wreck.
