Jurgis takes a job building tunnels under the city streets of Chicago. Unfortunately, one night, as Jurgis is leaving the tunnel, one of the rail freight cars gets away and comes barreling down the tunnel. It hits Jurgis on the shoulder, breaking his arm and knocking him out cold. He ends up in the hospital.
