Doman, Frederick James (1874–1914)

A fatal accident occurred at the sawmills of Messrs. James Cossart and Sons, White Swamp, New South Wales, about noon to-day, resulting in the death of Frederick James Doman. It appears that the deceased threw a chain over a big log in order to pull it off the trolley on to the breaking-down bench by means of the lifting gear, and when stooping between the log and the trolley, to reach the chain from underneath the log, which was balanced, rolled and crushed his head on the trolley. Death was almost instantaneous. Doman, who was 40 years of age, was a married man with four children, and had been with his employers for nearly 20 years. He was well known and much respected throughout the district. The body will be interred at Boonah on Friday.
