“Cried a Little, Prayed a Lot?
Says Youth Trapped 12 Hours
By the Associated Press. -
CHELMSFORD, Mass., Oct. 30.—
An exhausted red-eyed youth of 19
who lay trapped for 12 hours in a
shifting sandbank today told how
during the long night hours he "cried
a little and prayed a lot" and once
when an avalanche completely buried
him "knew” he was going to die.
And then as dawn broke and while
hundreds of tense volunteer workers
held their breaths, a crew of Lowell
sewer department employes, who had I
cautiously built a crib around the im
prisoned Manuel Camacho, carefully
drew his bruised body from the sand
and rushed him to a hospital.
"My legs are a little sore, but I'm
all right,” he murmured through
chattering teeth. At Lowell Hospital
he was treated for general exhaustion
and given intravenous Injections of
nourishment. X-ray pictures disclosed
no broken bones.
The accident occurred while Ca
macho was helping load a truck.
“I couldn't breathe,” he said, ”1
knew I was going to die. Then I felt
some one's fingers clutching at my
hair through the sand. I cried, 'Don’t
let that damn thing come down again.’
''Some one gave me a crucifix to
hold. I couldn’t help but cry a little
and I prayed a lot.
‘‘My father came down, I remem
ber, and talked to me. Things were
becoming hazy and far away. Some
one gave me some brandy and later
coffee and a sandwich.
"A priest leaned over and talked to
me. I was weak but heard him say,
‘Pray and everything will be all right.'
He told me to hold fast to the cruci
fix. I did. Even when I was using
my one free hand to help scoop the
sand,beneath me I would not let it go."
Cautiously rescue workers drove
planks into the sand, forming a square
barricade to check further slides in
the 35-foot bank. Then workers
shoveled the sand out from under the
imprisoned youth.
