Roth, Esther (1854–1913)

The death of Esther Roth, 56, at Callan Park Asylum, on January 11, formed the subject of an inquiry at the City Coroner's Court yesterday, before Mr. J. McKensey, acting coroner.

In the evidence it was shown that about 10 p.m. on November 21 last the deceased woman stepped from a moving tramcar in Blue's Point-road, and fell backward to the roadway. Dr. L. H. Hughes admitted her at the Royal North Shore Hospital, suffering from a fractured skull, and deceased was subsequently removed to Callan Park.

A verdict of accidental death, the result of injuries received through falling from a tram car, was recorded.
