Bristol Girl in Canal Drama (by Mike Sanders)

Mandy Ingrams, a pretty, fair-haired, six-year-old girl, nearly drowned last Wednesday in the canal in Moss Park. Here is the report of the accident:

“Mandy is on her way to school. It is her teacher’s birthday and Mandy wants to buy her some flowers. She is going to the local sweet shop on Central Estate, but the owner, Mrs Marjorie Hawkins, is telling her that she doesn’t sell flowers. So Mandy is going to the bank of the canal in Moss Park to pick some wild flowers to her teacher.


Two hours later, the police find Mandy. She is lying near the water and she is unconscious. She also has a broken leg. She is lying three inches from the edge of the canal. Police Constable Peggy Booth tells me, “Mandy is very lucky to be alive. She had a very narrow escape.”

Mandy is now in the children’s ward at Bristol General Hospital.

Next Time?

Once again, the Moss Park Canal is the scene of a near fatal accident. The canal passes very close to Saint Johns First School. At this point it is over two meters deep. There are no fences.
