Evans failed to take the curve by the Navigation Hotel, and instead of going along the main road turned down the canal bridge, the Avails of which are only about two feet high. He got in contact with the wall, and fell over into the canal, and was completely submerged. Two little boys, Stanley and Brinley Jones, of i Alartin's Terrace, shouted for assistance. The boys' father, Air. 1 Isaac Jones, brought a long chicken pole out. and Sergeant Evans arrived immediately after- wards. The difficultv was to locate the submerged young man. Eventu- r'lv a coat was noticed in the water. Ultimately the young man was pulled out. He Avas unconscious, and showed no signs of life.

Griffith was then sent for. and the young man removed to the Navigation Hotel. About 11 p.m. Evans regained con- sciousness. He was removed to his home OR the following morning.
