Storyline

Another entry in the Floyd Gibbons "Your True Adventure" series, supposedly based on a real true-life incident. This one is about a young man who is delegated to repair a high-rise smokestack on a hot summer day. He becomes dizzy and the heat finally drives him out of his mind. He starts throwing objects at the two men working on a scaffold below him and, at the risk of his life, one of the men climbs up and grapples with him, knocks him unconscious and and thus saves the life of all three men. Gibbons present the hero with the usual check. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
