George Edward Bulmer (1869–1916)

At the Sydney City Coroners Court on Thursday an enquiry was made regarding the death of George Edward Bulmer (45), formerly of Chesterfield-avenue, Waverley. He was killed by being run over by a motor fire engine in Old South Head-road, on July, 8. The evidence was that a tram driver stopped his car between the usual stopping places to make way for the fire engine. Some of the passengers alighted, including deceased, who stepped almost under the fire engine. Accidental death was the finding of the court.
