Deaths At Bideford And Cullompton

An inquest was held by Mr A Barrow at Cullompton yesterday afternoon on the body of Lucy Haydon Osbourne, aged one year and nine months, daughter of William Osbourne, timber haulier. Florence Ingersent said she missed the child, who was standing at her door a few minutes before, and on going down the path by the river saw her rise from the water. She raised the alarm, when the child's father, who was near, at once got in the water and took the child out. Mr James Perry, baker, came on the scene, and tried artificial respiration, as also did P C Ball, until the arrival of Dr Barrow of Uffculme. The jury, of whom Mr J H Baker was foreman, returned a verdict of "Death by accidental drowning". The jury expressed a wish that some fencing should be placed along the river for the protection of children, as there was not a more dangerous place in the town.
