Newman, of the firm of Newman and Sons, tanners, of Kettering, got into dificulties while bathing some little distance from the shore, and Mr. J.D. Marsh, proprietor of the bathing machines, gallantly swam out to his rescue. He reached him and turned him towards the shore, but became exhausted, and both were eventually landed by a boat in a lifeless condition. Artificial respiration was tried for an hour with no avail. Mr. Marsh was well-known in the neighbourhood. Mr. Newman had the reputation of being a good swimmer, but lately had suffered indifferent health. He was captain of the Kettering Wanderers Cricket Club."
