Doorman Bailey was killed when a train struck the patrol wagon he was a passenger in. Doorman Bailey and his partner were transporting a female prisoner to the Coney Island Police Station when their horse drawn patrol wagon was stuck by a Brighton Beach Railroad train. Both officers were thrown from the wagon into the Coney Island Creek. When backup officers arrived they pulled both officers from the water, but Doorman Bailey died before he reached the hospital.

Doorman Bailey had been with the Brooklyn Police Department for six years and was assigned to the 24th Precinct, which later became the modern day 61st Precinct.

Doorman Bailey was survived by his wife and two daughters.

"Doorman" was a rank for a uniformed member of the Brooklyn Police Department in the late 1800's.

A tragic loss of life for a city that is not simply part of another. On this 119th anniversary of your passing in the line of duty, I wish to simply say thank you for your service. I hope and pray that your descendants have you still in their hearts and on their minds.

God Bless and may your rest ever be peaceful.
