Constable George Simmons

Post by Karen on Fri 3 Aug 2012 - 7:34

Constable George Simmons, mentioned on page 130 of the "Jack the Ripper: An Encyclopedia."

RESCUED BY A CONSTABLE.

A plucky constable named Simmons was commended today by the magistrate at Greenwich for rescuing a man named Mullinger, who attempted to commit suicide in the Thames. Mullinger was seen in the river amongst some blocks of ice, and the constable waded out till the water reached his breast, when he was able to reach the man and bring him to shore. Simmons had since been in the infirmary. Mullinger, who was charged today with attempted suicide, pleaded that he had had too much to drink. - He was discharged.
