Death After Fall Down Stairs

Post by Karen on Mon 18 Jul 2011 - 21:44

SHOCKING ACCIDENT.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. George Collier held an enquiry at the London hospital respecting the death of Baptiste Vandyke, aged two and a half years, the child of a cigar maker, living at 10, Baker-street, Bedford-square, Stepney. The evidence of the mother, and a neighbour named Thomas, went to show that while the little fellow was walking downstairs on the 31st of July he slipped and fell to the bottom of the flight, a distance of 10 to 12 feet, dashing his head so violently against the bottom stairs that some of his brains protruded. The witness (Thomas) took him from the arms of his horrified mother, and brought him to the hospital, where he lingered till the 13th inst., and died of inflammation of the brain. It was stated by the witnesses that the stairs were very steep and dangerous, being entirely without hand rail, and that they themselves had frequently nearly fallen down them. The jury, in returning a verdict of "Accidental death," considered the stairs ought to be better protected.
