DROWNING FATALITY AT BARRINGTON. SHEFFIELD, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
DROWNING FATALITY AT BARRINGTON. SHEFFIELD, Tuesday. An extremely sad event happened at Barrington yesterday, when Mr. Sidney Russell, aged 21, was drowned while bathing. The deceased went to the Forth River, at Barrington, for a picnic with a few friends, including his brother Dave and Maurice Best. The day being very hot they decided to have a bathe. It appears that Sidney Russell became helpless in the water, and his brother endeavoured to assist him to land, but owing to deceased catching hold of him, both became exhausted, and but for the assistance of Maurice Best both brothers would have been drowned. Dr. Davis was summoned from Sheffield by telephone, and was quickly in atten- dance, but the body had been in the water for about an hour before it was recovered, and life was extinct.
