    • Drowned in a well at Sydney n the 1820s

      The second incident?? The Sydney Gazette Thursday 10th Feb. 1825.
      On Friday afternoon last, a fine child, bordering upon two years, the son of one Solomons, in King Streel, was unfortunately drowned in a well. The poor little creature had been seen by the mother only a moment prior to the disaster, and upon being missed, she ran to the well, where was seen a bubbling of the water. Assistance was immediately pro- cured, and the sweet babe soon raised, though the well is about 36 feet deep, with 5 feet of water. Every effort was resorted to, to restore animation, but it was unavailing, as the neck had been dislo- cated in the fall. The Verdict of a Coroner's In- quest was, we understand, Accidental Death.
      Notwithstanding we have had repeatedly to observe upon the extreme criminality of individuals leaving wells exposed to the danger of travellers, and espe- cially of poor little infants, yet it would seem that the mind is callous to every appeal-to every afflic- tive visitation ! Only a few weeks ago we noticed a similar doleful event that took place in Hyde Park, where, by the bye, the well was not directly in the way of danger; in this instance, however, the well was not only at the corner of a populous street, but within two yards of the very door of the distracted parents' dwelling !
