Hyman, Hyam (1816–1860)

An inquest was held yesterday morning, at the King's Head Inn, Lower George street, on the body of the late Mr. Hyam Hyman, whose sudden death was reported in our issue of yesterday. From the evidence adduced it appeared deceased was observed to fall upon the pavement, and struggle as if in a fit. He was removed into the shop of Mr. Watts', chemist, near Park-street. Mr. Watts applied the usual remedy for a person in the apparent state of deceased. Dr. Bland saw deceased, and prescribed for him. A large lump was observed to be working in the throat of deceased; his wife was sent for and came. When she came she commenced to strike deceased on the back, for the purpose of enabling him to speak. Soon after he said, "Anne, I am dying," three times, and showed an inclination to stretch himself on the floor; he was again raised on to the chair. He expired in a few minutes. For some time past he had been ailing from a cold. On the evening of his death he was muffled up, as if to guard against it. The jury having heard all the evidence, returned a verdict as follows:– Deceased, Hyam Hyman, aged 36 years, died suddenly from natural causes.
