      BARHAM WOMAN'S FATAL FALL

      An inquest was held at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital on Monday, on Mrs Rosa Jane Willis, aged 77, of High Street, Barham.

      Edward Willis, a labourer, husband of the deceased, stated that on December 18th, just after tea, he was clearing the table and his wife fell while walking to the sink. He thought she went to put her hand on the table, but missed it. The floor was covered in cocoa-nut matting and there was nothing she could have fallen over. She had fallen on previous occasions. She complained of pain after the fall and he got her to bed. The doctor was sent for and the deceased was removed to the Hospital the following day.
      Dr W B Foster, Kent and Canterbury Hospital, said that the deceased was admitted with a fracture of the left thigh bone and the left femur. A post-mortem examination revealed that death was due to heart failure caused by senility and accelerated by the fracture.
      A verdict of "Accidental death" was recorded.
