Hollingdale, Lena K. (1896–1915)

from Farmer and Settler (NSW)

At Narooma (N.S.W.) on Sunday. Miss Hollingdale, daughter of a well-known jeweller of Sydney, lost her life. With her brother and sister, who had arrived previously on a visit, the young lady went for a bathe in the lagoon about a quarter of a mile from the township. The party had just donned their bathing clothes, when a bull came along. The animal's bellowing frightened the girls, who jumped into the water, getting beyond their depth. The brother rushed in and succeeded in bringing one of his sisters to shore. On attempting to rescue the other sister he was seized with cramp, and with difficulty regained the land. Miss Hollingdale had sunk in 7ft. of water and it was an hour before the body was recovered.
