PONTARDAWE WORKMAN DIES AT SWANSEA HOSPITAL. The Swansea Borough Coroner (Mr J. C. Morris) held an inquest at Swan- sea on Tuesday, on the body of John Jones, of 26, High street, Pontardawe who, according to the evidence of Dr. Tudor Thomas( Swansea Hospital) died on Sunday last from asphyxia after suffering from injuries to spine due to an accident. The asphyxia would be due to vomiting. The case was well-nigh hopeless from the start. Richard Jones, 26, High street, Pontardawe, gave evidence of identi- fication, and said deceased was his brother-in-law, and was a collier em- ployed at the Tarreni Coliery, Pont- ardawe. He was a married man with two children. David Rees, Ynismeudwy, Pontar- dawe, a shotsman at the Tarreni Col- liery, who was present when the acci- dent occurred, on Friday last. said, as a journey of trams was coming in to the colliery at about four miles an hour deceased went to cross the tram road and witness hear him shout. The signal was given to "stop," which was done almost immediately, and it was found that deceased had been knocked down and lay with his nock against the wheel of the third tram. How he came to be in that position witness did not know, but in all probability he ha.d slipped after the first tram had passed. When he got to him deceased cried: "Pick me up, pick me up, I slipped." By Mr Lewis (H.M. Inspector of Mines): The side of the track was perfectly clean. The coroner said it was clearly an accident, but on the doctor's evidence death was due to asphyxia, through vomiting into the windpipe. On the advice of the coroner the jury returned a verdict of "Death in ac- cordance with the medical testimony."
