Man Slowly Drowned

Post by Karen on Thu 21 Jul 2011 - 0:34

SLOWLY DROWNED.

Mr. George Collier held an inquiry at the Eagle tavern, East India-road, Poplar, relative to the death of Robert Jones, aged 62, second engineer of the ship Robert Dale, now lying in the Millwall dock. Deceased had been ashore in company with the third engineer, and on returning found the gangway to their ship barred by a number of luggage waggons. They crossed these by the buffers, and deceased, in leaping from the buffer to the quay, missed his footing and fell into the dock. His companion at once lowered himself into the dock on board, and succeeded in grasping the deceased's hand, but could not assist him any further. Being late at night, their cries for assistance were unheeded, and after a time deceased said he was getting cold, and could not hold out any longer, and dropped back into the dock. His companion ran at once for assistance, but ere the drags could be procured the poor fellow was drowned. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
