Mr Stanley Westwood Killed by Falling Timber A well known Colac man, Mr Stanley Westwood of Church Street, Colac, lost his life as a result of an accident while timber getting at Gerangamete on Monday. It appears that Westwood, accompanied by his brother, Charles and Basil Bamford, went from the mill to a spot where they had been felling trees about three months ago. On that occasion the top of one of the felled trees had caught on the top of another. Nothing was done about it at the time. On Monday, according to a statement by Bamford to the police, deceased on Monday proceeded to pull away the part of the tree that was caught in the other. He was using a steel and draw bar of the tractor. The rope which he had tied to the butt of tractor was ten feet away from the butt when the pulling commenced. A green limb snapped off the standing tree and struck Westwood on the head, and rendering him unconscious. The accident occurred about 10.30 am and the victim was taken to the Colac Hospital suffering from severe head injuries. He died early in the afternoon. Sincere regret will be felt throughout the town and district at the tragic death of Mr Westwood, who was held in high esteem as a business man.
