Death While At Dinner

Post by Karen on Thu 28 Jul 2011 - 23:36

YESTERDAY'S INQUESTS.
DEATH WHILE AT DINNER.

Yesterday Mr. Wynne E. Baxter held an inquest at the Poplar Town hall on the body of Mary Ann Perry, aged 70, lately living at 62, Upper North-street, Poplar. Harriet Upton stated that the deceased had lodged with her over two years, and enjoyed fairly good health, but had suffered from bronchitis. On Wednesday last, at 11:30 a.m., witness was in her kitchen, when she heard a noise overhead as though something had fallen down. She did not take any notice of it at the time; but soon after, thinking that it might possibly be the deceased, she went upstairs and found her lying on the floor with a knife and fork and a potato lying beside her. She had evidently fallen down while eating her dinner. Witness placed her on the bed and sent for a doctor, who prescribed for her, but she never regained consciousness and died about 11:30 a.m. on Thursday. Dr. Thomas Harvey stated that the cause of death was effusion of blood on the brain, and the jury returned a verdict accordingly.
