ANDREW KING

West Malling, Kent


A coroner's jury at West Malling, Kent, has returned a verdict of death from natural causes in the case of Mr. Andrew King, a well-known local jeweller. On Sunday last he was spinning for pike in the Medway, and on meeting a friend stopped to relate an amusing experience he had had with live bait. He laughed heartily and suddenly fell dead. A post-mortem showed that Mr. King's heart was five times the normal size and larger than that of a bullock. Death, it was stated, resulted from heart disease.
