Sittingbourne. Melancholy Fatal Accident.

On Tuesday morning last, an inquest was held at the "Prince of Wales," beerhouse, Milton, before Mr. Coroner Hills, and a jury of whom Mr. Charles Pillow was foreman, on the body of Eliza Ellen Holland, 13 months old, the infant child of John Holland, landlords of the house mentioned, whose death was occasioned under the following circumstances:-

In the backyard there was a small rainwater tub, or washing trough, about 14 inches high, which was put out on Monday to catch some rain water. In the afternoon Mrs. Holland was sitting at work with the child by her knee, and about half-past three o'clock it left her - it had run about alone about 2 months but she did not notice which way it went. A minute or two afterwards Mrs. Holland sent her daughter to see where the child was, and she found her in the water, face downwards, heels sticking up over the tub, as if she had pitched in. She was at once taken indoors, her clothes cut off, and she was rubbed and put in a warm bath, but nothing availed. The child just drew its breath once, and then expired. Dr. Sutton, who was called in directly after the sad accident, tried artificial respiration for some time, but without avail. He stated that a very short immersion in the water of a child of that tender age would cause death. Deceased died simply from suffocation.

Accidental death.
