Whilst on top of a carriage affixing the lights for the late train, the deceased slipped and fell heavily on to the platform.

Bush Advocate, 3 July 1908 DEATH FROM EXPOSURE
... While the nightwatchman was doing his usual rounds at about 1.30 this morning, he came across a man lying on the pavement in front of the Junction Hotel, apparently in a senseless condition. Mr Coleman took immediate steps to have the man cared for, and summoned Dr Macallan, who had him conveyed to the hospital, where everything was done to restore him, but without success, death taking place at about 6.30 this morning. The man was named James Gibson, and he was aged 52 years. So far as we can learn, the deceased has been a resident of this district for over 20 years, and was for a considerable part of that time employed as a ploughman and horse-owner in the Pongaroa and coast districts. It is not known exactly when he came into town, but he was before the court on the 30th of June last, when he was convicted and discharged for drunkenness. Yesterday he had breakfast and dinner at the Mangatera Hotel, and came up into town during the afternoon. He returned to the hotel in a cab about tea time, and came back to town in a cab at about 7 o'clock. Constable Malone saw him after 10 o'clock, but nothing further is at present known of his movements from this time up to the point when he was found by the nightwatchman, and with a view to eliciting the facts an inquest will be held to-morrow morning, When the doctor first saw him the man was conscious, and told Dr Macallan that he had intended to go home, but lay down to have a sleep. When asked where his home was, he pointed to the opposite side of Miller's Road, indicating one of the boarding-houses there. In Dr Macalla's opinion death was due to exposure
