f.r. j s F  t-  H? ?s Fat- Acci?e? A., INJURED WHILE DELIVERING COAL I Mr v\ Brodie conducted an inquest at Capel Als Schoolroom on the body of David Davies, 45, Mansel street, who died at the hospital as the result of an accident sustained whilst following his employment as a haulier. Margaret Jones, a nurse at the Hospi- tal, said that deceased, who was 68 years of age, was her uncle. He told witness that the accident occurred when he was taking off the back of a cart whilst de- li vering coal. David Thomas, 18, Palace Avenue, stated that deceased brought a load of coal to his house on June 11th. Deceased proceeded to undo the back of the cart; the first bolt came out easily, but the second one gave trouble. Deceased then picked up a lump of coal to knock it out, and afterwards asked for a hammer. Wit- ness went to fetch him one, but when he returned the bolt had just been knocked out. The door now slipped, owing to the pressure of coal in the cart, and the UDDer J — _r £ part of it struck deceased in the abdomen. Deceased soon became restless, and started groaning. Dr. Sam Williams was sent for, and he took deceased to the hospital. Witness added that the affair was a pure accident. Dr. Sam Williams said that when he examined deceased he was suffering froJIl shock, but there was nothing to suggest necessity for surgical interference. The cause of death was shock, the result of the blow on the abdomen, accelerated by a dilated heart. The jury returned a verdict of "Acci- dental death."
