A Christmas Day Accident – 1911

Willie Hall, aged 4 years and 9 months, son of Mr. Walter Hall, of Hill End, met with a serious accident at his parents’ residence on Christmas Day. He dropped a bottle of lemonade which he was carrying, with the result that the bottle burst, and a piece of glass flew up and penetrated his right eye. The little boy was brought to Bathurst, where it was found that the eye was so injured that it had to be removed.
