FALLING IN OF THE ROOF OF A WORK- SHOP. Five Men Buried and Injured. The inhabitants in the neighbourhood of Weaton- street, Bermondsey, were alarmed by a sudden report on Tuesday morning, representing an explosion, fol- lowed by a heavy fall and noisy clattering of material. The occurrence took place shortJyafter ten o'clock. It was speedily ascertained that the roof of a work- shop had fallen in on the promises of Mr. Carey, the wood pavior in Camperdown-place, where about a dozen men were at work in the interior of a shop which was about 20ft. long and 25ft. high. The walls were of brick and the roof was composed of wooden beams covered with tiles. Assistance wa3 promptly rendered, and five of the men who had been buried by the fallen material were helped and extricated, two of them being able to get upon their legs, only again to fall down. Three of the most seriously injured were placed in a cab, and immediately conveyed to Guy's Hospital, the remaining two men being led in. Mr. John Duke, the house surgeon, was in prompt attend- ance, and immediately examined the wounds of the injured men, selecting the worst saffererer, and on obtaining the assistance of other gentlemen ail the sufferers were attended to. The names of the injured men are William Pert, carpenter, who sustained severe wounds on the head and other in jaries; Thomas Aberill, smith, a severely broken collar bone, cuts on the head, and other injuries; Cornelius Murphy, labourer, injuries to the head, and bruises on the body; Thomas Swindel, yard fereman, cut head, and blows upon the body; and John Brown, labourer, internal injuries, particularly complaining of his tight eide. It appeared that the building was very old, and that in a compart- ment adjoining the workshop there was a steam- engine, the vibratioa during its working being sup- posed to have shaken the roof which so suddenly fell in upon the men. The bodily injuries sustained are not of so severe a character as to apprehend loss of life in either case.
