INFO SHOOTING ACCIDENT. Marlborough Express, 4 Apr 1910. Word was received in town this morning that a shooting accident had taken place at Waihopai, the victim being Master Fred Farmar, the 13-year-old son of Mr F.B. Farmar, of Blenheim. The boy left town about 5 o'clock this morning in a buggy, accompanied by a youth named Norman James, to bring back a motorcar. The lad was then removed to the Wairau Hospital. The facts of the accident are that the boys had in their possession a revolver, out of which they had fired several shots, there being only one loaded chamber left, which contained a cartridge that had failed to go off. In some unaccountable manner this cartridge exploded, the shot entering young Farmar just above the groin, inflicting a very serious wound. An examination was made at the hospital by Drs Nairn and Bennett, which revealed the fact that the injuries received are of a severe nature. Master Farmar is a present in a critical condition, the doctors fearing that peritonitis will supervene. (MarlExprDig 4Apr1910, p.5).
