EXCI S ING SCENE NEAR LYONEY. 11 Narrow Escape of Three Lyney Ladies. Particulars of a most exciting incident which occurred on Irhe river Severn at a pomli imme- diately below the Severn Railway Bridge, which crosses the river between Sharpness and Purton, were reported m Blakeney this morning. It appears that three Lydney young ladies went for an evening's outing to Purton, and its there was a big tide expected, they got on the Wheel" Rock to watch it flow it. The tide fllowed rapidly, and whilst they watched it coming up the channel it did not occur to them to look behind, where the tide bad begun to flow up the saddle of the rock and thus to cub them off from the mainland. However, they did at length discover their position, but escape Was then absolutely impossible, and they gave vent to the most vehement cries for help. Nr Henry Inman, who is the bridge keeper, took them a rope, which he threw over towards them, but the width of water was so considerable that it proved unequal to the requirements of the case. Mr Inman then ran to the Severn Bridge Hotel in order to get Mr Franklin's boat, but this proved fruitless, and he started to Gatcombe, a mile away for a boat from there. He was now sue- cessful, and he made back down the Channel with all the speed he could make, though, as the tide was rnshing so rapidly, progress was slow. Meanwhile the position the young ladies wolre in atbracted the attention of some men from the iSharpness Old Dock, and these valiantly put off inabomb and started across the river to their rescue, and, it is stated, reached them jusb in time. The water had covered the rock, and the poor young ladies, huddled together, and in water up to their waists, were taken off. As the train was in the station immediately above them it was decided to send them on home just as they were, and this was done. Mr Inman and his boat arrived on the scene just afterwards. It was conceded that had assistance not been afforded as it was the lives of the unfortunate ladies must been sacrificed.
