We deeply regret to record the death by drowning of Dr. Tompsett of St. Catherine, which sad event occurred at Angel's Pen, St. Catherine, yesterday morning.... the Doctor, accompanied by Mr. Arthur Douet and his servant, a boy, went out shooting. Mr. Douet had shot a brace of ducks and the boy went in to the water to get them. Mr. Douet seeing the boy in danger of being drowned, went in after him, and he also failed to keep himself above water. Dr Tompsett seeing this, also jumped in after them. The cries of the three attracted the attention of some people in a boat, who rescued Mr. Douet and the boy, but it appears that Dr. Tompsett had got his feet entangled in the rushes growing in the water, and was dragged down, and on his being taken out of the water life was very nearly extinct, and he died shortly afterwards...
