At the end of the last post, Patty had gotten out of the sewer system, and was on her way to get help for Perry.
Just after Patty got out, Perry heard a noise behind the rubble. There had been another tremor, which created an opening. His feeling of relief began to switch to panic as the air became still while he tried to crawl through the crowded opening.
Perry realized, as he peered up at the sliver of light that appeared to shine through the opening Patty had used, that he should wait for her to bring help.
Granted, Patty was only gone a short time, but he thought he could make it out the back way.
When he had gone about thirty yards, there was another tremor and he could not move either way again. He could faintly hear Patty and others calling him, but they couldn’t hear him.
After a while, he heard nothing at all.
Once you pick the best course of action, you should stick with it.
