—————— MUMBLES GIRL'S SAD Ii FATE. EVIDENCE AT SWANSEA I INQUEST. CORONER ON "MOST DANGER-1 GUS PRACTICE." The Swansea Borough Coroner (Mr. J. C. Morris) held an inquest at the Coroner's I Court, Swansea-, on Thursday, touching the death of Eleanor Delahev John, the young lady who met her death under tragic cir- carnstanoes on Tuesday last by being run over by th £ Mumbles train at Wesicross. Deceased lived with her parents at 5, Ckd8 Gate, Mir. Samuel John (the father), a, joinerr, identified the. body a.s that of his daughter, who was 16 years laxt Christmas Day. She was engaged at the Walter-road Post Oltioe. Mr. Charles Clement, P--oar-Wit- lane, Weatc-rosfc, who was a passenger c*n th** 7.1,; train from Swansea, said decease* got out. j at, We^t-c^ross. Deecrihing the manner in which she alighted witness sa,id that as de- ceased was preparing to jump off witness's wife said, Oh, dear, don't jump off until the train stops." Before, however, it aotu- aillv stooped, deceased jumped off, and, stepping too sh ort, fell under the carriages. About THREE CARRIAGES PASSED THE I SPOT J 1- .9'1 .1 h- before the train couia no puueu up. The tra.in stopped a. little before its usual plice and it was quite clear that no one, save perhaps the poor girl herself was to bliai-n,, certainly not the Miss Bronwen Ridd, 39, Gloucester-) place. Mumbles, lace-maker, thought her; late companion fell off the train. She had got down two stops, a.nd appeared to turn round to speak to witness when she, slipped. It w as the practice to step down two steps whilst the train was in motion. Th« Coroner observed that this was a i Most dangerous practico, and advised witness to discontinue it. Proceeding, witness said the late Mi?s! John had her back to the engine, in order to speak to her. They had been warned on the way down that evening about get- ting off when t?le train was in motion. The Coroner trusted that this would be a ]"¡;on to Miss Ridd. Fe was afraid j many deaths occurred like this. 1 (Proceeding.)
