Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Friday 31 August 1888
Accident at Denaby Main.
Early yesterday morning a serious accident happened to a dataller mined William Gabittas, employed by the Denaby Colliery Company.
It appears that the man was at work, when all at once a fall of debris took place and buried the poor fellow.
He was got out as speedily as possible and conveyed to his home at Conisborough in the colliery’s ambulance.
Dr. Sykes’ assistant was soon in attendance.
