ELECTROCUTED

WILLIAM LOITERTON OF WALLENDBEEN

There was a tragic happening at Wallendbeen yesterday afternoon. William Lolterton, aged. 30, a married man with a family of four, was cleaning out the gutters of the roof of the cottage occupied by his aged mother, the widow of the late Charles Loiterton, of Wallendbeen, when he slipped. To save himself from falling off the roof he grasped the electric wires leading into the home from the Burrinjuck service, got caught with the current, and could not get free fom the wire. His screams for assistance attracted the attention of the golfers on the course alongside. It was during the afternoon tea in connection with the season's official opening. The men ran over to assist. Others were also soon on the scene. One man, Mr. Cecil Connors, cut the wires with an axe to shut off the current from the unfortunate victim, who was still alive.

The ambulance and a doctor were summoned from Cootamundra, and the electric substation at Cootamundra was phoned. The ambulance with the doctor aboard, did the 12 miles in 12 minutes; and Messrs. Slater and Lucas ??f from the sub-station, were there in ??? minutes.

Meanwhile Messrs. Mormon and Connors, of Wallendbeen, who had had ambulance training, took charge of the case, and gave directions to the willing helpers. Using the ladder by which Mr. Loiterton had gone up to the roof, they got him down, and laid him out. He was unconscious, but still breathing, although the current had passed through his body for some minutes; and they worked to restore animation until the arrival of Ambulance Superintendent Moorhouse and the doctor. The latter continued their efforts, but in vain, until 10 minutes to 7, and the body was then brought to the Cootamundra District Hospital.

The accident had happened at about 4.45.

Deceased was born at Cootamundra. His father at time was farming. A member of a very esteemed family, descendants of the district pioneers, he followed shearing, and his brothers Fred and Ken made a clever trio in demand at the woolsheds around. All the brothers are handy men on the farm and in other spheres. For the last six months William had been renovating the home of Mr. Dixon, of "Bramshott," Wallendbeen, and, having a few days off from there, he was doing odd things for his mother, aged 71.

Mother and son had separate homes adjoining, but facing the two side streets off the main road which runs out from Wallendbeen towards Murrumburrah. To the veteran the fatality is a dreadful shock, as to all the other relatives and to Wallendbeen and district.

Deceased married Miss Oriel Dacey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Dacey of Wallendbeen, who are also links with the earliest settlers about there; and there are three daughters and a son. The latt??????????? old and eldest girl is 12.

Brothers of the deceased are Steve (Cootamundra), ???????? Ken and Sid (Wallendbeen), Jim (Burrinjuck); sisters, May (Mrs. Roy Duffy, Cootamundra), Maude (Mrs. Len Troy, Lake Cargelligo), Emma (Mrs. George Ceeney, Wallendbeen), Eliza (Mrs. Geo. Adams, Taralga, Vic. and Ivy (Mrs. Geo. Mayne, Wallendbeen).

The Cootamundra Coroner (Mr. J. T. Kenehan), after formalities this morning, fixed the inquest for next Tuesday.

The interment took place in the Anglican cemetery at Wallendbeen this afternoon, following a service in the church.2
