Shocking Occident qear Treherbert. » Three 14en Seriously Injured. On Sunday afternoon a terrible accident oc- curred on the mountain sHle near Treherbert, resulting in shocking injuries to three young men, namely, William Llewelyn (21), Thomas Llewellyn (19), residing at 6, Dumfries street, Treherbert, and William Johnson (24), of 9. Abertonllwyd road, in the same locality. At 2.30 the three unfortunate young fellows, ac- companied by two companions, had climbed the hillside. One or two of them had detona- tors in their possession, and a ball of dynamite for the purpose, it is stated, of destroying some fisli in the stream running down the mountain by exploding the powder under water. John- son, it appears, had struck a match to light the fuse which had been inserted into a detona- tor held by Thomas Llewelyn. They were about igniting it when William Llewellyn came up with a similar ctetonator, having a fuse at, tached. As he was in the act of setting the fuse to the burning match the detonator explo- ded, causing serious injuries to the three young men, who stood close to the explosive. William Llewelyn was badly burnt on the face and arms The right hanJ was terribly mutilated, and had to be amputated. His brother's face is sadly disfigured as a result of the explosion, and a portion of one of his hands was surgically re- moved four hours after the accident. Johnson's injuries are not so serious. He has, however, been badly burnt about the face and hands. Dr Warburton, Treherbert, and his two qualified assistants, Messrs Grant and Charles, attended to the injuries of-the victims of the explosion.
