Killed by Trench Cave-in
Wilfred McRae and Albert Brake, employees of the Guelph Waterworks Department, were buried alive in a trench they were digging on Paisley River Saturday morning. Another employee who was working in the trench escaped fortunately, when he climbed out of the hole, which was five or six feet deep, to get a crow bar, and a few seconds afterwards when he returned he found his work mates buried. It took half an hour's digging to recover the bodies.
