I DIED AT THE ABERBARGOED I HOSPITAL. 1 At the Police Station, Aberbargoed, on Wednesday, Mr J. B. Walford, the district coroner, held an inquest on the body of David Richards, 37, married, of Ystrad Mynach, who died at the Aberbargoed Cottage Hospital, last week, from injuries received a few day previously at the Penallia Col- liery.—Mr A. Moore represented the Powell Duffryn Company, and Mr Hubert Jenkins, J.P., the Miners' Federation. Evidence of identification having been given by David Evans, D. Davies said he was collecting his tools near to where the accident happened. Deceased was filling a tram of coal alone on this particular part of the workings. Witness thought that a fall of coal bad dislodged a post. He actually saw the post strike deceased. He estimated that about seven cwt. of coal fell from the face of the workings. Receiving no answer to his shout after the fall, witness went up and saw the deceased lying on his back. He bad sustained a big cut, and was bleeding fast. The flow of blood was stopped, and deceased was carried out within half an hour of the accident. Witness had since then ascertained that the fall of coal was due to a slip. Samuel Davies, the day fireman, said he visited the district about 1 p.m. Deceased was at that time cutting a post ready for placing up. He examined the working place and thought it was quite eafa. Upon a subsequent examination, he found a back slip to the coal, and was of the opinion that deceased was working on this when the accident happened. He did not think that the slip of itself would have caused the fall.—The Coroner having summed up, a verdict of Accidental Deatk was returned.
