11121Accidentally drowned near Glenalmond College; Perthshire. Northern Warder and General Advertiser for the counties of Fife, Perth and Forfar Thursday 6 July 1854 - page 5 Trinity College - Death by Drowning On Wednesday evening last week a very melancholy accident occurred in the Almond near Trinity College. Two of the students of the college purposed crossing the river, and were cautioned not to attempt passing by a bridge which was dangerous from being lately partially destroyed. They accordingly took a ford, and when about the middle of the stream, which was considerably swollen, one of them named Himsworth suddenly slipped and was swept away with the violent torrent. His companion had much difficulty in retracing his steps and reaching the bank in safety, without being capable of rendering the least assistance to his fellow-student. Shortly assistance arrived, and drags and various implements were put in requisition to discover the body of the unfortunate youth, but without success, until the subsequent day, when it was taken out at Mill Hole, almost two miles below where the accident happened. The melancholy event caused a painful sensation at the College.
