Boater in fa­tal fall

Canal Boat - - News -

AN 80-YEAR-OLD woman has died fol­low­ing a boat­ing ac­ci­dent on the Mac­cles­field Canal.

Mar­garet San­der­son from South­port was boat­ing with her hus­band on their nar­row­boat. They were be­tween bridges 46 and 47 near Lyme Green when she fell from the back deck of the boat into the wa­ter and be­came trapped un­der­neath the hull.

She was pulled free by a mem­ber of the pub­lic, the emer­gency ser­vices were called, and she was trans­ported to Mac­cles­field Dis­trict Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal by air am­bu­lance. How­ever, she died the fol­low­ing day.
