Sunday Six

Six sentences for Sunday, April 27:

“Have you ever seen a man drown?” he asked. “Close up, I mean.”

“I can’t say that I have.”

“Once when I first started out, I was in a shaft that collapsed—started taking on water. I managed to get free, but the man I was working with was pinned. The water was coming in and I tried to pull him free, but there was nothing I could do. And the look on his face as the water rose over his head—I’ll never forget it.”
