Tragedy on the Great Orme. NURSEMAID'S TERRIBLE DEATH. At noon to-day (Friday) a terrible tragedy occurred on the Great Orme, re- sulting in the death of nursemaid, named Annie Plant, and serious injury to the four-year old daughter of Dr. Malland. The Bowers, Altrincham, whose wife is a sister of Mrs Wills, Glasfryn, Abbey Road, and was on a vsit there with her two little girls. Just before noon the nurse and two children were strolling on the high cliff just beyond the Happy Valley ToMgate. There does not appear to be any actual eye-witness of what preceded the fall, but a boatman saw the nurse and child fall from the rocks above, a distance of about 150 feet to the Marine Drive. It is sur- mised that the child slipped and that the nurse tried to save her, falling over the cliff herself in the attempt. The child was in the nurse's arms when picked up on the down the cliff together. It is surmised that the child slipped and that the nurse tried to save her, falling over the cliff herself in the attempt. The child was in the nurse's arms when picked up on the Marine Drive. The nurse was quite dead. Her skull was terribly fractured, and death must have been instantaneous. The little girl had also been seriously in- jured about the head. She was first taken to the residence of Dr. Nicol and then to Glasfryn. It is expected that she will recover. An elder girl, aged 8 years, was also in charge of the nurse, but fortunately remained safely at the top of the Orme. The body of the Nurse, who was about thirty years of age, was conveyed to the Mortuary, and an inquest will be held on Saturday.
