Mrs. Powell summoned Lowell firemen as Don Seramur, young brother of B.J., worked frantically to uncover him with a trench-digging machine. Firemen, too, worked with shovels and uncovered Hendricks just as he was down to his last breath. Firemen administered oxygen and revived the exhausted victim and he was rushed via ambulance to Gary Mercy hospital. He was released Friday night.
Mrs. Powell, the Hendricksons and Seramurs are grateful to Lowell firemen for their prompt response and life-saving help.
