    According to the report in the Sydney Morning Herald of 24 October 1930, I think you’ll fine that the man who fell from the bridge was Victor Kelly not Vincent Kelly. There is nothing in the report about him dropping his tool belt in the water to break his fall. He was a boiler maker and he fractured his ribs when he hit the water – feet first, which broke the surface. He was not quite straight when he hit and if he had been he speculated that he may have had no injuries at all.
