ABERDOVEY. FATAL ACCIDENT- On Friday morning last a frightful accident occurred at the new reservoir now in course of construction for the Towyn Urban Council. On the previous day some excavations had been carried on at the works, and this together with the heavy rains which fell during the day and the night loosoned the earth. Two men went to work on Friday morning and about a hundred tons of earth slipped and completely buried one of them, a man named Thoinas Jenkins, a resident of Llan- fihangel, Cardiganshire. His comrade, too, was partly entombed but was rescued alive, having sustained serious injuries. When Jenkins was extricated from the debris, life was extinct. He leaves a widow with- two children. The same evening an inquest was held on the body at the Literary Institute before Mr W. R. Davies, the county coroner, when a verdict of Accidental death" was returned. Considerable damage has been caused to the workings.
