Suffocation from Choke Damp at Bradwell, Derbyshire.
The village of Bradwell, about twelve miles from Sheffield, was thrown into consternation a few days since by the death of four men from choke-damp. Many inhabitants are miners, and rich veins of lead ore, running from east to west, are worked at a distance of three miles from the village. Most of the ore is smelted at the village, where there are several cupolas for the purpose. A correspondent of a daily paper says -"Four men lie dead at the works, erected near the old cupola, about four of five years ago, for the purpose of extracting lead from the "slag", or refuse from the old smelting furnace, by some improved process. These works have been out of operation for twelve months, and were reopened on Wednesday. In consequence of the pump which supplied the engine with water not working properly, the manager of the works, a man named Mitchell, was obliged to descend the well and open a valve to allow the air to escape. This valve was fixed to a stage which was about six feet and a half from the bottom of the well, and reached from above by a ladder. It appeared that Mitchell had performed this operation several times during the day, and between ten and eleven o'clock on Wednesday night, he went down again, for the same purpose. Being absent for some time on this occasion, one of the workmen named Hallam descended the well to see what was the matter. Hallam was heard by some others of the workmen calling to Mitchell, by presently his voice ceased. The workmen became alarmed, and on one of them descending the well, he found both Mitchell and Hallam senseless. This man was unable to render his companions any assistance, such were the overpowering effects of the air, being highly charged with noxious vapours. He made his escape with the aid of parties at the mouth of the well, with considerable difficulty. Some of the workmen set off to the village for assistance, and on their way met two young men, named John Dernelly and Joseph Elliot, to whom they communicated the fact that Mitchell and Hallam were lying in the well nearly dead, but unfortunately without adding a word of caution as to the danger of descending the well. Dernelly and Elliot hurried of to the well, whilst the workmen went forward to the village. It appears that on arriving at the well Elliot descended, and being a powerful young man, he succeeded nearly in reaching the mouth of the well, being one of the bodies in his arms. Suddenly he wavered and let go his burden to save himself. Dernelly caught hold of him, but the superincumbent weight dragged him from his feet, and he and his companion fell to the bottom of the pit. It was sometime before the well was sufficiently cleared of choke-damp to permit of it being explored; but when this had been done the four unfortunate men were found lifeless. Mitchell has left a wife and four children; Hallam a wife (who is near her confinement), and four little ones; Elliot and Dernelly were not married men.
