KILLED BY A HORSE AT WRENTHORPE

Mr P P Maitland held an inquest at Wrenthorpe, near Wakefield, yesterday, on the body of George Amos Minter, aged 10, son James Minter, miner, Bragg Lane End. On Monday noon the lad was flying his kite, and he ran backwards into a horse, which kicked him on the head and broke his neck. The mother alleged that the owner of the horse allowed the animal to roam about, and he had been warned that if he did not get rid of it, it would killing somebody. The owner, however, denied this, and said the horse was very quiet. The jury returned a verdict of Accidental Death.
