Two furgeons immediately attended; but she was dead. On examining the hody, no bones were broken, but bruises appeared about the breast, and, on opening oue, fymptoms were obferved about the chest which left no room fo doubt the deceafed came by her death in confequence of the dreadful blow received in her fall.
