SONS HEAR HIS CALLS TOO LATE
Nathan Leslie, of Porter's Lake, alive when taken from water, but soon dies. Pulled from the frigid waters of Porter's Lake nearly one hour after he is believed to have broken through the ice while preparing a brush protection for smelt fishing, Nathan Leslie, elderly resident of Three Fathom Harbour, died from exposure at 8: o'clock this morning. Mr. Leslie had left his home at an early hour, followed some time later by two of his sons, Glenn 26 and Arnold 16 [was probably 18 years old]. Shortly before 8 o'clock as the sons approached Sandy Cove on Porter's Lake, they heard faint calls for help. Rushing up they found their father, barely conscious and fighting hard to save himself from sinking beneath the icy water. The two sons managed to secure Mr. Leslie and drag him to safety then carrying him to the home of Severino Perry, when he died a few minutes later. Dr. Rowlings of Musquodoboit Harbour was called.
How long Mr. Leslie has fought to get out of the ice trap into which he had fallen is not known. His watch had stopped at 7 o'clock. The wide hole filled with broken ice at the scene of the tragedy was mute evidence of the fight he put up for his life. An inquest was held, the jury of which Severino Perry was forman returning a verdict of accidental drowning. The deceased who for many years was postmaster at Three Fathom Harbour was well known and highly esteemed throughout the district and his tragic death came as a great shock to his family and friends. He is survied by his wife and eight children. the sons are: Glenn, Hubert, Arthur and Arnold. The daughters are Reta (Mrs. Minter), Fairbank Street, Dartmouth; Jessie residing with Mrs. Minter, Dartmouth, Hattie, employeed at Moirs Ltd, Halifax and Doris at home. Two brothers, Maynard and Gibson Leslie of Seaforth also survive.
