About CHIRGWIN, John

CORONERS INQUESTS.

FATAL ACCIDENT.—The City Coroner (Mr. Thos. Ward, J.P.) held an inquest at the Flagstaff Hotel, South-road, on the body of John Sherwin [sic], who died the previous day from the effects of an accident. Mr. Jas. Culver was chosen Foreman of the Jury. Martin James Sherwin, son of deceased, said his father was a labourer living at Rapid Bay. His father, Arthur Hardy, and himself left Mr. Bennett's place at Rapid Bay on Monday, May 6. They started from the Victoria Hotel, Tapley's Hill, on Thursday morning. His father had had plenty to drink, but could walk steadily. He seemed a little tipsy when they reached the Flagstaff Hotel, where he had some more drink. His father was driving the bullocks (six) in the dray, and he was riding behind on horseback. When about a mile from the Flagstaff he saw his father on the pole of the dray. He was getting down when his foot slipped, and he fell on his face close to the near side wheels which passed over his back. His father called out to him to stop the bullocks, and he did so. He twisted about, but could not get up and did not speak again. Two men brought him along to the Flagstaff Hotel in a buggy. The dray contained iron harrows and furniture. William Hamilton Ayliffe, of Darlington, stockholder, said he was driving to Adelaide in company with Mr. Brown on Thursday. When about a mile from the Flagstaff Hotel he saw a man on his face in the road. His son was standing by crying, and the bullocks and dray were some distance in advance. The man gave a gasp as he was being lifted, into the trap. Witness sent for Dr. Forster. Edmund Cliffe Brown corroborated the last witness's evidence, and said deceased died in his arms about 10 minutes after his arrival. Dr. Forster said he was summoned to the assistance of the deceased, but when he got to him he found that life was quite extinct. The dray had passed over the small of the back, and dislocated the bones. There must also have been internal injuries to cause death so soon. He bad no doubt; the liver was crushed. The immediate cause of death must have been internal injuries received by the passing of tbe dray over the back, in addition to the dislocation of the vertebrae. John Bennett, farmer, of Rapid Bay, gave evidence as to the identity of the body, and stated that he last saw deceased alive at Reynella on Wednesday. Deceased was in his employ, and sometimes drank too much. He had left a wife and large family wholly unprovided for. The Jury returned the following verdict:—"That the deceased met his death by accidentally falling from the pole of a dray, dislocating the vertebrae and occasioning other internal injuries." The Jurors handed £3 2s. 6d. to the Coroner on behalf of the widow, who is left in destitute circumstances, and has nine children, only two of whom are able to work.
