Moxon, Donald Kingsley (1926–1933)

from Sydney Morning Herald

Donald Moxon, 8, of Hastings-parade, North Bondi, who was injured while descending a cliff at Ben Buckler, on Wednesday, died in St. Vincent's Hospital yesterday.

Statements made to the police indicate that Moxon was throwing a foot rule in the air on a cliff near his home, and when the rule was caught by a gust of wind and lodged about 30ft down the cliff he set out to retrieve it. While he was doing so he was struck on the head by part of a brick. He was admitted subsequently to the hospital, suffering from a depressed fracture of the skull.

The boy was a son of Mr. Moxon, an official of the Child Welfare Department.
