A child killed by a cherry stone.

An inquest was held yesterday at the "Traveller's Home Tavern," Woolwich, before Mr C J Carttar, coroner for West Kent, on the body of John Smith, 5 years of age, the son of a carpenter, residing at 26, Joseph Street, Woolwich. The evidence proved that on Thursday last the child swallowed a cherry stone, which remained in his throat and cause such pain, that Mr Hughes, a surgeon, was sent for, who advised the immediate removal of the sufferer to hospital. This was not acted upon, and on the following day the child appeared to be better, but subsequently relapsed and death resulted. A post mortem examination had been made, and, after hearing the evidence, the jury returned a verdict, "That death resulted from suffocation, consequent upon swallowing a cherry stone."
