Conisborough Brothers in Mine Accidents.

Two brothers were involved in accidents at Yorkshire Main Colliery on Tuesday. These were Abraham and Ernest Fox, and both reside in the North Cliffe Road district of Conisborough.

In the morning, Abraham had the muscles of his right arm injured by a fall, but was able to go home.

The other accident, which occurred in the afternoon, was more serious, and resulted in a broken leg and an injured back for Ernest, who had to be conveyed to Doncaster Infirmary, where he died shortly afterwards.
