"An inquest was held yesterday afternoon before the Borough Coroner, at the Great Western Inn, Icknield Street East, touching the death of Benjamin Turner [20], porter, in the employment of the Great Western Railway Company, Hockley Station. On Friday morning last the deceased was seen by a fellow workman standing on the deck of the goods shed at the above station, waiting for the arrival of some empty trucks. The workman went into a truck to remove an oil cask, and, looking round, saw the deceased lying motionless near to where the truck passed. He went to him and found him in a state of insensibility and apparently dreadfully injured. He went for Mr. Waterson, surgeon, but his assistance was of no avail, life being extinct. The man who was working near him at the time did not see him at the precise moment when the accident took place, and could not positively swear how his death was caused, but he strongly believed that he must have been standing near or crossing the rails, when he was caught between the buffers of the foremost advancing truck and the buffers of the stationary one. The Jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
