The Crash

Extracts from this document...


The crash I pulled the last body out of the twisted, crumpled wreckage. There were six of us in all myself the only one conscious. I knew they would probably all be dead, but it felt instinctive to help them. They lay there; all of them in a line beside each other on the warm jungle floor .I sat down beside my friends, as I felt helpless in this maze of trees and greenery. Alone. It must have been hours until I was woken up by a gentle voice, "Andy? Andy wake up." My raw, red eyes slowly opened to see Julie "Where are we Andy?" was all she could manage. As I stood up I noticed the other bodies were still there. "They're all dead!" I think is what she mumbled, the last word turning into tears.

We listened attentively for minutes, until we realized that the sound was getting louder and louder. Finally, we caught a glimpse of the huge, grey helicopter. We leaped up in the air waving our arms frantically praying that the people onboard could see us. It passed over us and we thought our chance of survival was gone but it must have turned around as we again heard it approaching. We once again jumped around frantically in a state of pure urgency, and this time we were spotted from above. The helicopter lowered down a "saviour" rope to us and we strapped ourselves on.
