Visitor Drowned at Barry Island. SEIZED WITH CRAMP. LACK OF LIFE-SAVING APPLIANCES. Mr William Thomas (29), rollerman, Wynd- ham-street, Tongwynlais, was drowned in Whitmore Bay on Monday evening. Deceased engaged a bathing machine, and entered the water, but he had not been enjoying his bath more than five minutes when a companion of his (Mr J. Onsel Jenkins) saw him throw up his arms twice and sink out of sight without utter- ing a cry. Efforts to find the body were futile, but it was washed ashore at Nell's Point and recovered by Mr James Hyamsen, boatman, and Beach-inspector Medlin, about. seven o'clock, and removed to the Marine Hotel, where the inquest will be held. It is supposed that the deceased—who leaves a widow and one child- was seized with cramp when in the water. This is the first fatality that has occurred during the season, and, considering that several thousand persons have indulged in a bath during the I season, it speaks volumes for the safety of the bay. INQUEST. Mr E. LI. Rees, deputy-coroner, held an enquiry respecting the occurrence at the Mal ine Hotel on Wednesday, Mr F. J. Loyns being foreman of the jury. Evidence was given that everything possible bad been done to attempt the rescue of deceased, and Dr Billups having declared that death was due to drowning, a verdict, was returned accordingly. Comment was made on the fact that no life-saving ap paratus was placed near the spot, and it was decided to rpquest the coroner to communicate with the District Council asking them to cause bathing machine pioprietors to have life-belts hung outside the machines and life-lines attached.
