-+-- LEAPS FOR LIFE. A verdict of Accidental death was re- turned at the inquest on Mr. William Birt- wistle, aged seventy-three, one of South- port's oldest traders. On Friday last, after visiting his son at Formby, he was returning to the railway station in a van when the horse bolted. There was a conversation between Mr. Birtwistle and the driver as to who should jump out first, and the driver being the younger of the two decided to take the first leap, but when he jumped he fell back- wards. On picking himself up he endea- voured to overtake the runaway, but failed to do so. Some distance away the horse collided with a post, and just before this occurred Mr. Birtwistle had taken a leap. He was found on the road in an unconscious state, with two bones in the left leg broken. Death took place on Monday, the cause be- ing shock as the result of the accident. The Coroner thought that the driver, Charles Lovelady, had done all he could in the occurrence.
