Full ReportAccident No. 10 occurred in the 13th level south of No. 1 shaft Tamarack May 15th and Christopher BANKSTROM laborer was instantly killed. At the point where the accident occurred it was considered perfectly safe, but a blast had been fired near by which evidently loosened the hanging and when the unfortunate man went back to his work a piece of hanging wall rock gave way striking BANKSTROM on the head crushing his skull and breaking his right leg. An inquest was held before Coroner MACDONALD when the jury returned the verdict that the said Christopher BANKSTROM was accidently killed by a fall of ground caused by a concussion after a blast.
