Child killed by Whiskey

The three year old daughter of William Evans, Hopkin Street. Treherbert, was killed by drinking a cupful of whiskey on Sunday afternoon. It appears her father went from the room for a few minutes, leaving a cup of undiluted whiskey close by the child and when he returned the stuff had all disappeared.

The child fell into a stupor, and strangely enough a doctor was not summoned until 11 hours after the misadventure. The stomach pump was then tried but it proved to be too late. The child shortly afterwards expired.
