intensified by the heavy, painful air.
- He began to search the walls. Above
- his head the ooze was seething and
shifting and water was beginning to
- trickle in big drops.
- "The bags, boys!" yelled Creegan.
I Hays jammed a bag against the

A jump of air like the breath of an

with his arms above his head. shot
straight up into the air. His com
panions, recovering from the shock,
saw Creegan's feet and calves kick
ing vehemently, hanging from a hole
in the roof.
His Body Plugged the Hole.
For perhaps a quarter of a minute
the three workmen hesitated. Cree
gan was plugging that hole. If they
drew out the plug, in would come the
river. All of a sudden, fate decided
it. There was a rush and roar; Cree
gan's feet went on up, and the river
began to flood the compartment. The
rush stopped as suddenly as it had
begun, and their ears sang with the
return of normal air pressure in the
- chamber. Just then their comrades
rushed in through the lock and res
- cued them.
This is what had happened to Cree
gan. The leak had burst in an unex
pected spot. The compressed air had
rushed up to find an outlet through
the river, and carried him with it.
But his body plugged the hole, and
there he stuck, unable to breathe,
with the mud and pebbles of the river
bed choking him and the air pressing
him from below.
Helped to Free Himself.
An eternal minute he hung there,
,and did some awfully quick thinking.
1He knew that he couldn't get back
the air pressure was too strong. His
r only hope was to butt his way
.thtrough the river bed. He had gone
r up with his hands above his head.
Frantically he jabbed and swung at
e the mvud. And just as he felt the last
- air in his lung. -.:omy, he got free.
FWith an awful rush he went up. He
saw the light; he caught one glimpse
of the Brooklyn shore; and he was
Sflattened out on the river, :- ng

1 A lot of longshoremen of the

t hay-and a man. They saw him
1 splash back into the water and try to
swim. In two sec.onds they had un
