Fire at the Church
Who, What, When, and Where?
"It was terrifying. I was screaming so much." A little girl says still traumatized by the event. One by one, each child was tossed out to a window to safety. But after the rescue, time was running out the the old church collapsed. Ponyboy is in the hospital because of too much smoke inhalation and some back burns. Unluckily, the church had collapsed onto Johnny. They say that he is in the hospital for a broken back. He was have faced certain death if another teenager friend hadn't dug into the rubble to pull him out. Maybe he is never to walk again, but they are still hailed as heroes.
