One of my OH's ancestors was crossing the road when a wagonette ran over her foot...the landlord of a nearby public house took her inside and when he removed her boot, blood poured from her ankle. He put her foot into a bucket of water and she bled to death before a doctor could be found.This was in 1905....she was 28 years old and left seven children, the youngest was only seven months old. Four of her sons later died at sea within the space of eighteen months, two of the brothers were on the same ship.

One of mine was shot in the neck and pistol whipped to death, then buried in a shallow grave beneath an avocado tree in the back yard by a notorious serial murderess, Louise Peete.  This was Mrs. Peete's last crime and she died in the gas chamber for it in 1947.

Was reading through a newspaper from 1900 last night and came across a article about a shocking death.
Anyway a young family including the mother were travelling across the Atlantic and when the children were naughty the mother threatened them with putting them out of the port hole.
She left the children unattended and when she returned she asked where the baby was to which they replied,baby was naughty so we put her through the port hole.
Apparently the ship looked but to no avail and the passengers were most affected
How awful !!

My grandfathers nephew, Gibb McAughtrie, and many other relatives of mine, were involved in the Knockshinnoch Mining Disaster in the 1950's. (New Cumnock).  Some of them did not survive, but  Gibb was the first person to be brought to the surface during the rescue mission. Several miners died, including a number of my relatives who were involved in the drawn out rescue procedure.  One of them, Andrew Houston, lead the rescue team.  Another relative got the George medal!  Both my grandparents were born in New Cumnock, so there were a lot of my relatives from both sides whose lives were lost, or they were seriously injured.

I have a video of a film that was made about the rescue "The Brave Don't Cry", sent to me by a relative, I also have a book that was written about the Disaster, "Black Avalanche"!

My granddad William Bickerton was one of the rescued men,looks like your relative got him out!Again i have many relatives killed in the Ayrshire coalfields,so much that my Grandad and my mum wouldn't let me go down the pit.
  My wife's great aunt died as a young teenager after her nightie caught fire as she lent over the fire to hang up her Christmas stocking :(

My probable great great grandfather was an engineer at a chemical works and had to investigate an accident where one of the workers fell into a vat of caustic chemicals.
