Accident at Dudley's Chain Works

Post by Karen on Sun 9 Mar 2014 - 18:28

SINGULAR ACCIDENT.
One Man Killed; Three Injured.

An accident of a peculiar character, unhappily attended by loss of life, occurred on Tuesday afternoon at Lord Dudley's Chain Works, at Round Oak, Brierley Hill, Staffordshire. A piston-rod in an engine was found to be defective, and the engineer
decided to put it in a fire with a view to straightening it. The piston evidently contained moisture, for steam generated, and being unable to escape, the piston exploded, the fragments striking several men and damaging the works. A man named Hollins
was instantly killed, and three other men were seriously injured.
