Apparently falls from log - body taken from two feet of water at lake - death of Jimmy Hayes attributed to heart attack. Jimmy Hayes, 14-year-old son of James Hayes, Grimsby, died at Grimsby Wednesday evening under unusual circumstances. The lad had been working near the lake all summer, and had been in the water swimming every day. He was an expert swimmer. Late Wednesday afternoon he was sitting on a partly submerged log a few feet from shore, when he apparently slipped off backward.
Two young Hamilton boys, George Worsley and James Smith, only a few feet away, watched bubbles coming up for a minute or so and then decided something was wrong. They lifted him out of the water only two feet deep and carried him to shore.
Bathers applied first aid until the arrival of Dr. A.F. McIntyre, who worked over him for some hours. Coroner Dr. Gordon A. Sinclair pronounced life extinct. His death was later attributed to a heart attack. He was the oldest child in the family, and is survived by his parents, two sisters and three brothers.
