      Fatal Accident at Dewsbury

      On Monday afternoon, a lad named Joshua Auty, residing at Westtown, fell from a building at Batley Carr, two storeys high, on which he was working, and received severe internal injuries. He was conveyed home, and Dr P. Thornton called, but he expired on Wednesday evening. - On Thursday evening, an inquest was held on the body, before Mr Thomas Taylor, coroner, at the Mount Pleasant Inn, Westtown. Mr Oxley was appointed foreman. - Ellen Auty, widow, said she lived in Senior Street, and the deceased, who was sixteen years of age, was her nephew. He had been apprenticed to the joinering business about twelve months. He went to his work on Monday, at noon, in good health; about half-past four the same afternoon he was brought home by his master, Samuel Blackburn. The deceased complained of pain internally. Dr Peter Thornton attended him. The deceased did not improve at all, but gradually became weaker, and died on Wednesday, at five o’clock p.m. He continued conscious up to his death. No limbs were broken. - By a juryman: He could not tell her how the accident happened. - Thomas Bairstow, a resident in Batley, said he was a joiner. The deceased and witness had been employed together for about six months. They went on Monday morning to put the roofing on to three houses at Batley Carr. The deceased had been on buildings before, but he had not experienced any dizziness when he was on the roof. The deceased went to fetch some nails, and walked on the outside wall to the place where they were, and when he had got back to where witness was working with the articles, he put his foot on the “break course,” slipped, and fell to the ground, a distance of seven or eight yards. What caused the deceased to fall was that where he put his foot on the “break course” there were two bricks loose. Witness had told the deceased not to walk on the outside wall several times. – A verdict of “Accidental Death” was returned.
