Pickering, George Thomas (1832–1858)

The Cricketers of Sydney will regret to hear that on Monday, the 22nd instant, a serious accident occurred to Mr. George Thomas Pickering, of Melbourne, the well-known cricket amateur. Mr. P. was bathing at Sandridge, and on diving into water shallower than he expected to find it, pitched upon his head and was rendered insensible. He was conveyed to the bathing-house, where he now lies in a very dangerous state from the injuries he received, viz., his collar bone broken, his spine very much hurt, and his neck nearly broken. By telegraphic message received yesterday afternoon by Mr. Wells, the medical men pronounce his case very serious, and hope of recovery very slight.
