Nine Hours Under a Fall, CWMDARE MAN'S REMARKABLE ESCAPE. Early on Wednesday morning, Mr. John Isaac, of Bwllfa-road, Cwmdare. an old and experienced collier, engaged at present at the Bwllfa No. 1 Colliery as an airway man, while at his work was buried in an extensive fall of roof. A gang of men was at once requisitioned to clear the fall, and they soon ascertained that Isaac was alive. He was further able to assure them that he was, as far as he could say, uninjured, a huge stone acting as pro- tection to him, forming a bridge under which he lay. Gangs of men, under the direction of the officials, at once set to work, which proved of a difficult and dangerous character, as the men had not only to protect themselves from further falls, but also to work with very great care lest they might move that portion of the fall which protected Isaac. After nine hours of exertion sufficient progress was made to enable them to get the man out, happily un. hurt, but in a very exhausted condition. When extricated he at once recognised Alder. man Rees Llewelyn, the general manager, agent and managing director of the colliery, who had been underground for many hours superintending the rescue work. Addressing Mr. Llewelyn he said, Well, well, I suppose I must be carried out. This is the first time I have ever been carried out of a colliery." He had never before, it transpires, been hurt while at work underground, although his ex- perience underground at the Bwiifa extends for well nigh half a century. The unfortunate man was in a somewhat painful condition on Thrusday morning.
