Pontycymer Child’s Fall

On Thursday of last week little Willie Clifford Hawkins, aged five,son of Mr. and Mrs. D.J. Hawkins, Oxford St, Pontycymmer, met with serious accident. Whilst playing on the side of the hill which lies between Thornton Crescent and the Public Baths, Pantygog, the little fellow rolled down the banking and into the river, the fall being about 18 feet. Drs. Cogan and Reilly were soon in attendance, but up to the time of writing the child is lying in a grave condition, suffering from a fractured skull. On going to press, we hear that the poor little fellow has since succumbed to his injuries.
