Two Wathee Children Drowned.
On Wednesday afternoon, word
was telephoned to the police station
at Wailuku that two children had
been drowned at the dam of Waihee
river. Deputy Sheriff Haysolden at
once started to the scene of the ac
cident, and the bodies were recover
ed, quite a distance below where the
sad accident occurred.
It was learned that the teachers of
the Waihee school had taken the
children out for a mayday picnic, and
some of them were playing on the
dam There had evidently been a
heavy cloudburst far up toward the
headwaters of the stream, for there
suddenly came rolling down a wall of
water about tour feet high. All of
the children except a little girl, Vir
ginia Haehae, aged about 11 manag
ed to escape, but the rush of water
was too strong for her, and she was
hurled over tho dam where she clung
for a moment to a boulder. A second
wall of water followed the first,
washing her off tho rock and carried
her down' the stream to her death.
One little boy, Moses Maialoha,
was left on tho further side of ttie
stream, and he attempted to cross
the dam over which a flood was now
pouring. Principal Coke and the
teachers shouted and waved to him
to go back, but probltbly tjeing
frightened, he refused to obey their
wanting and waded into- tho stream.
A moment later tho angry water
seized him and carried him swiftly
Both belies were recovered during
the afternoon, and were interred at
tho Waihee cemetary on Thursday.
