The Leigh Hoy in Hanbury St.

Post by Karen on Sun 3 Jun 2012 - 19:27

FATAL FALL.

On Saturday Sir J. Humphreys held an inquiry at the Leigh Hoy, Hanbury-street, Whitechapel, respecting the death of Rose Cheffers, aged 49, wife of a waterside labourer, of Haydon-square, Minories. According to the husband's statement, his wife indulged at times in intoxicants. At a quarter to ten on Saturday night she returned home the worse for drink, and went to bed. Shortly afterwards he heard a heavy fall, and upon going downstairs found her lying on the stone flags at the bottom of the stairs, where she had fallen and struck her head. The next day he took her to the London hospital, but she refused to stay in the institution, and on Wednesday she was removed to the Whitechapel union infirmary, where she expired on Thursday. Ruth Hyam, nurse at this establishment, said the deceased had a wound on the back of her head. She was insensible, and never recovered consciousness. Dr. Ilott, the medical officer, found death to be due to fracture of the skull and compression of the brain through falling down. The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the above facts.
