SWIMMING.—Why not teach swimming to our youngsters ? At a coroner's inquiry held at Morriston on Friday into the circumstances attending the death of David Oswald Francis aged ten, who was drowned in the Tawne at Morriston on the previous day, the evidence showed that the boy had taken his boots and stockings off and was crossing a shallow part of the river, where the water was only up to his knees. He slipped, got confused, was carried by the current into deep water, and was drowned. A witness named John Harris Carpenter, aged 12, said deceased got carried into a pool, and when he saw lie was sinking witness, who could not swim, called to a man for assistance, but instead of responding lie went away in an opposite direction. A verdict of accidental death was returned and the Coroner expressed the hope that some arrangement could be made for Morriston lads to learn swimming.
