WOMAN BURNT TO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 18 January 1878
WOMAN BURNT TO DEATH. A terrible catastrophe happened at the Gunbower on Thursday week, by which a wo- man named Annie Norband was burnt to death. It appears she was engaged in washing some clothes, when she went too close to the fire under the boiler and her clothes ignited. She immediately ran to a waterhole a little distance off, and jump- ed into it but too late even to save her life. Before she reached the waterhole nearly everything she had on was burnt, and various parts of her body was charred. On being rescued she were taken into Echu- ca and admitted to the hospital there, but died almost immediately afterwards. At the magisterial inquiry held upon the re- mains, a verdict of accidental death was recorded.
