Captions from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "Where Car Rolled Down Embankment Into Lake."
1_2883: "A view of the embankment, immediately west of the boathouse at Pinafore Park, where Mrs. Kathleen Scott, of Delaware Township, 19-year-old bride, was killed about four o'clock, Sunday afternoon, when a parked car, owned by John Cousins of Belmont, went down the embankment, into Lake Pinafore. Mr. Cousins' mother, Mrs. James Cousins, of the Glanworth district, was the only person in the car. She was rescued from the lake by Murray Griffin, lifeguard at Pinafore Park, and others.
The car was parked at the top of the embankment, about where the largest maple tree shows. It took a diagonal course to the left in travelling about 40 feet down the bank into the lake. It rolled into the lake at a point about in the centre of the above picture. Mrs. Scott was in the direct path of the car and was carried into the lake and pinned under the left front wheel. She suffered a fractured skull and face injuries and also a severe leg injury. The sharp break in the embankment does not show clearly in the picture. There is a rather steep incline of 15 or 20 feet below the top of the embankment."
1_2886: "The motor car that rolled down the embankment was pulled out of the lake by a towing truck supplied by E. L. Schram, Wilson avenue. The car was a 1935 black Oldsmobile sedan. It was in about nine feet of water, 15 feet or more out from shore. Police are investigating reports that the car, which had been parked at the top of the embankment, just off the roadway, a few minutes before the accident was bunted by another car. Mr. Schram said he examined the brakes at his garade and found that the emergency brake had been applied. The car was out of the water and back up on top of the embankment within two hours agter the accident. Murray Griffin, lifeguard, is shown holding one of the guide ropes, his back to the camera."
