Disembowelled by a Coal Cutter. Mr. George Lewis, Harlech-pla.cc, a married man, 27 years of age, met his death on Tues- day afternoon at the Llwynhelv Colliery, Cwmdare, Aberdare ,in a distressing manner. Deceased, who, with John Price and Idris Da- vies, was working in a thin seam in the colliery ooal cutting with the aid of the Pickwick bar coal cutting machine, was caught by the ma- chine, which is driven by electric power. The machine having gripped him, dragged him against the 'face," literally ripping him open. and partially disembowelling him before the machine could be stopped. When the ma- chine was stopped it was found well-nigh im- possible to get deceased from its grip, and Dr. E. J. Trevor Jones was sent for. When the doctor arrived the unfortunate man was still in the grip of the machine, and in great agony, but perfectly conscious, and priven directions to those around him how to liberate him. When he was liberated he had been so fearfully la- cerated, and had lost so much blood, that he died almost immediately. He leaves a widow and one child.
