The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

The en­tire prov­ince was sad­dened and shocked fol­low­ing a tragic ac­ci­dent in Bay Roberts that re­sulted in the death of 11year-old Christo­pher Ran­dolph Davis.

The boy, who lived in Cam­bridge, Ont., and was vis­it­ing rel­a­tives in Bay Roberts, fell over a 30-me­tre cliff in an area of Bay Roberts East known as Jones Head. Res­cuers had to use a boat to re­cover the boy’s body. The in­ci­dent prompted a de­bate about safety in the area, with Christo­pher’s par­ents, in a let­ter to the town coun­cil, sug­gest­ing the death was pre­ventable if there were warn­ing signs in the area.

Coun­cil later agreed to post warn­ing signs.
