Same location as 1911 incident. "About 50 years ago at almost the same spot where deceased was killed, a landslide took place and seven fishermen lost their lives, their bodies being crushed beyond recognition. A boy who was in camp with the men arose earlier on that morning of the happening than usual and went to a brook for water thus being saved".
