04/04/1874 – Hamilton Advertiser – Serious Accident to a Colliery Manager – On Monday morning, Walter Harvie, manager, Dykehead Colliery (wrought by Mr Robert Ure, East Kilbride) met with a serious accident. About 10 o’clock he had been engaged in taking a piece of coal off a stoop in the Pyotshaw seam of the pit in question, when a lump weighing between 2 cwts and 3 cwts fell from the stoop, and, striking him on the abdomen, he was thrown to the ground and jammed between two pieces of coal. The only other man in the pit at the time was a pony driver named Wining, to whom Harvie called for assistance. He was with difficulty extricated; and on Dr Robertson being sent for, he found that Mr Harvies spine was fractured, and that other severe injuries had been sustained. (Same Robert Ure?)
