Accident – Fall of Stone

January 1894

Mexborough & Swinton Times – Friday 12 January 1894


A young man named Luke Flaherty, living at 8, Annerley buildings, Denaby, yesterday sustained a severe scalp wound and lacerated wounds to the neck and hands by a fall of stone whilst following his occupation as a dataller at the Denaby Mein Colliery.

His injuries were attended to by the colliery surgeon (Dr. Howes), and we understand they are not likely to prove serious.
