400. Bruce Hannell

FATAL COMBOYNE ACCIDENT

A fatal accident occurred at the hoe of Mrs. G V. Trotter, Innesview, on Tuesday afternoon of last week, when her 2 1/2 years-old grandson, Bruce Hannell, was caught on the safting of the milking machines and was killed instantly.  The happening is made all the more tragic on account of the fact that the child was brought to Comboyne away from the danger area of Sydney.  the sympathy of the whole district is extended to Mr. and Mrs. Hannell and the Trotter family - 'Shire Gazette'.
