NARROW ESCAPE FROM DROWNING AT SILECROFT.
Two young fellow named REGINALD CROWLE and HARRIS, both of Millom, appear to have had a very narrow escape of losing their lives on Saturday last at Silecroft.
They were bathing on the shore, and CROWLE and HARRIS got out of their depth,, and only for the timely assistance of another young fellow, it looks almost certain that both youths would have been drowned.
When brought to the shore, they were quite exhausted, and CROWLE was in such a condition that it took him a long time to come round, and then only with assistance of artificial respiration, his brother, PERCY CROWLE, being fully versed through the Millom ambulance classes, in the requisite knowledge for the purpose.
Since the accident, the young fellow has been under medical treatment, but is now all right again.
