Mrs. Mary Ann Ellen Tierney, aged 68, of 26, Dyne Road, Kilburn,went with her married daughter to Edgware on July 5th. On her way to theladies` cloakroom at the Railway Hotel, Station Road, a screen fell onher, and caused a wound in the head. Three stitches were needed. Mrs.Tierney was taken home and her doctor was called. For many years she hadbeen subject to chest trouble. Bronchitis developed, affected the heart,and she died on August 12th.

 

Mr.H.Broadbridge (coroner) held an inquest on Saturday in theKilburn coroners court.

The husband said that his wife`s health was fairly good - she walkedwell and was quite steady on her feet. She was quite well when he saw herhalf-an-hour before she left home on July 5th.

Mrs.Simpson, a daughter, said that on entering the saloon bar of theRailway Hotel, Edgware, she ordered a drink for her mother, who went tothe ladies` cloak room. As she had not returned in six minutes witnesswent to look for her, and saw a man leading her to the saloon. She wasbleeding from the head and face. A doctor was sent for and he insertedthree stitches in a wound. Her mother told her that a door had fallen onher. She was taken home by car.

 

LYING ON THE FLOOR

Dagmar Robinson, employed at the hotel, said she say thatMrs.Tierney lying on the floor of the passage leading to the cloak room.She told witness that a door had fallen on her. A three fold screen whichcould easily be moved, was lying on the ground near her.

Mr.Joseph Ashwod, proprietor said there was sufficient light in thepassage. The screen which fell was a heavy one and was used in the diningroom. It was like a door and could be moved easily.

 

MEDICAL EVIDENCE

Dr.Isobel Finlayson, 13 Shoot Up Hill, Brondesbury, said that shehad attended Mrs.Tierney on and off for many years, but not since 1937.She was called on July 5th, and the next day examined the wound which wasthree-quarters of an inch long. Witness removed the three stitches onJuly 13th. The wound, which was clean, had satisfactorily healed, andthere was no septic trouble. Bronchitis developed - her patient had ahistory of chest trouble - and on July 30th the breathing became bad.Later oxygen was administered and Mrs.Tierney died suddenly while witnesswas present.

Dr.Skene Keith, pathologist, attributed death to myocardialdegeneration, due to disease of the lungs, accelerated by hemorrhage andshock caused by the blow on the head.
