Coroner Told Nine Trams Passed Man

The City Coroner, Mr. F. L. McNamara, was told yesterday that a man had lain for 30 to 45 minutes with a broken hipbone at the corner of Oxford and Moncur Streets, Waverley, while nine or 10 trams passed him.

Mr. McNamara found that the man, Arthur Reginald Townsend, of Nelson Street, Woollahra, had died accidentally at St. Vincent’s Hospital on February 26 from shock following an operation for a fractured femur, accidentally received when he fell from a moving tram on February 24.

He said: “I find it almost impossible to believe that no person saw the unfortunate deceased lying on the ground during the half to three quarters of an hour he must have been there.”

Constable Claude Richardson, of Paddington Police Station, said Townsend had told him he was getting off at Moncur Street and had one foot on the ground when the tram started off and he fell over.

Townsend had added: “The tram didn’t stop and I lay there while about nine or 10 trams went past before anybody came to my assistance.”
