1922 – Fourteen-year-old John Geoghegan was driving home in a sulky with his sister when it hit a stump and overturned.
They were about six miles from Jarrahwood, a small settlement between Busselton and Nannup in Western Australia.
His sister was thrown clear.
A local woman, Mrs. Buckingham, who was riding home, found the boy pinned to the ground, but was unable to move the cart.
By the time she had summoned help, John was dead. An inquiry found suffocation was the cause.
He is buried in the nostalgic Busselton cemetery.
