Injured four years ago, Stanley Ian Caldwell (36), of James road, Corrimal, died in Wollongong Hospital on Jan, 4th, 1942. On Monday, the Deputy Coroner, Mr. S. R. Musgrave, held an inquest at the Soldiers' Club, Corrimal. He returned a finding that death was due to the injuries accidentally re- ceived on Jan 6th, 1938.
Dr. A. L. Caselberg said Caldwell had consulted him early in 1938 regarding an injury sustained when he fell and struck his leg and thigh on a rail in the colliery. The injuries appeared unimportant and were attributable to bruising at that stage.
As deceased did not recover completely, witness discussed the case with Dr. Holland, and it was decided to put him in plaster of paris. This was on for about six weeks. Witness was not sure whether Caldwell went back to work at this stage or not, but as the pain became more severe x-rays were taken.
These showed a small growth on the pubic bone. Caldwell was sent to Sydney and given deep x-ray and other treatment. However, repeated x-rays showed a steady advancement of the growth.
After about two years his general condition began to fail as a direct result of the huge size of the growth and he developed Cachexia and died.
to Mr. Brewster witness said death was due to the growth caused by the injury. Questioned by Mr. Helmore, witness stated when he first saw Caldwell there was no indication of the likelihood of this growth occurring.
It was very rare for a carcinoma to to occur like that, especially in a man of Caldwell's age. In an ordinary case had the carcinoma not developed recovery would only take from four to six weeks. The growth form- ed on the right pubic bone on the inner side leading from the hip joint.
Sergt Murphy, of Corrimal, said on January 6th, 1938 Caldwell was packing a skip in the mine and While putting a packer on top, he slipped and fell, injuring his back and thigh.
Henry R. Campbell, manager of the Colliery, said from the colliery records it appeared there were no witnesses to the accident and Caldwell told the deputy he slipped on a rolling stone. Caldwell had been paid compensation.
Mr. F. Lowden appeared for the Miners' Federation; Mr. Brewster, for the Mines' Department; Mr. B. Helmore for the Corrimal Colliery; while Sergt. Murphy appeared to assist the Coroner.
