BARRY SAILOR DROWNED. IN RETURNING TO HIS SHIP. Thomas Hansell (38), marine fireman on board the s.s. Vauxhall Bridge, of West Hartlepool, was drowned at Barry Docks on Friday night last. The vessel was lying under No. 1 Tip, and was expected to proceed to sea at midnight. About eleven o'clock Hansell returned to the vessel with a shipmate, and the watchman, William Pritchard, alleged that both men were under the influence of drink. Deceased went on hands and knees as if to attempt to climb up the ladder from the quay wall to the side of the vessel, but he tumbled into the dock. In about four minutes Hansell was got out of the water by the chief officer, but he showed no signs of life. Artificial respiration was resorted to, but Dr Bray pronounced life to be extinct, and the body was removed to the Town Mortuary by Dock-constable O'Neill. An inquest was held on the body at the Central Police Station, Barry Docks, on Monday, before Mr E. Llewelyn Reece, deputy coroner, when Mr William Cayley, Board of Trade inspector, gave evidence of identification. -William Pritchard, ship's watchman, said the deceased, who was very drunk, was returning on board the ship, about eleven o'clock on Friday night, and was about to step on to a ladder to get on board, when he slipped on the quay wall, and rolled into the dock, but he was recovered by the chief officer and a rigger within four minutes. The body was placed on board, but although means of artificial respira- tion were resorted to, Dr Bray, on arrival, pro- nouncod life to be Coroner having described the gangway as dangerous, the jury returned a verdict of Accidental death."
