HEART SEIZURE IN FIELD. An inquest was new, by Dr. w. K. Jones (district coroner}, at Llanfrynach on Saturday, touching the death of John Prytherch (79), Bridgend House, whose body was found in a field near the village on Thursday. Rev. Hilary Lewis (rector) was foreman of the jury. Annie Prytherch said deceased was her uncie. He was 79 years of age. About 10.30 a.m. on the 1st March he went out for a walk. He was then in his usual health and did not complain of being ill. Of late his health had been very good, but about 12 months ago he complained of a difficulty in breathing. Thomas Perry, Brecon, said about 12 noon on the 1st March, as he was pushing through Llanfrynach he noticed a man lying down in a field close to the village, and thinking It an unusual thing for a man to lay on the ground this time of the year he went to see what was the matter. He found deceased dead but the body was warm. The body was removed to the house. Dr. T. P. Thomas. Brecon, said he examined the body some few hours after death and found no marks of violence. Deceased had also been medically attended by him some time ago, he then suffered from,heart disease. The coroner said that Dr. Thomas was prepared to give a certificate of death, but he (the coroner) thought it was best to hold an inquest on account of deceased being found dead in a field. The jury returned a verdict of death from natural causes, namely, heart disease.
