Compensation with a compensation claim Holy Island
The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is in Northumbria. In 635 A.D., Saint Aidan left Iona to go to Lindisfarne to set up his monastery. Holy Island is thought of as the perfect place for tranquillity but it has had its share of accidents and disasters. For instance, in April 1855, an inquest was held on the body of George Rankin, a twenty three year old fisherman.
The ball passed through his body
A party of seamen from the H.M. sea vessel Jackall, which was lying in the harbour, went onto land to exercise and get some target practise. Whilst the men were engaged in their duty, a number of the inhabitants of Holy Island gathered around them to watch. The crowd were repeatedly warned by the officers to keep back. The day was so cold that the men had to keep rubbing their hands to help their circulation. They had fired two rounds in the Sanctuary Close, near the old cathedral of Lindisfarne. Unfortunately, when they were reloading for the third time, one of the guns accidentally exploded and the ball passed through the body of George Rankin. He was standing only a few yards from the firing party.
George Rankin said “I have been shot. I have been shot through the heart.” The poor man put his hands on the shoulders of the next person to him, collapsed and died. Mr Rankin left a widow but no children. Two other people were injured but not seriously.
