Warnings Against Playing on Ice - Four Lives Lost - Trinity, December 29, 1857 - As a warning against playing on Ice, I feel it right to ask Publicity for the following on Sunday afternoon (27th inst.) on a pond in this neighborhood some 15 or 20 children (boys & girls) were playing. A boy named EGAN, son of Daniel Egan, and nephew of Captain Egan of this place, took another small boy named McGRATH with him to teach him how to skate, and venturing too far out over deep water, the ice broke under them and both fell through, Egan's brother ran to save them but he fell in also. The sister of Egans' seeing her brothers sink and disappear, ran screaming to their rescue and she also fell through and thus the two brothers 14 and 16 and their sister 18 were drowned with the boy McGrath aged 9 or 10. The feelings of the bereaved parents at so awful and sudden catastrophe must be left to the imagination of those who can commiserate the distressed - Correspondent of Newfoundlander.
