Charles Byron Alley, Jr., assisted in an attempt to save Thomas R. English and Wayne A. Nagle from suffocation, Allentown, Pennsylvania, July 14, 1973. Alley, 19, a college student, reporting for temporary work at a sewer interceptor station, saw English, 20, lying unconscious at the foot of a ladder that descended to the building’s lower level through which flowed open sewage. Alley reported the situation to a park maintenance hand, who accompanied him back to the station after calling police. Both descended to the lower level, where they found Nagle, 17, also unconscious. By the time they had determined that both English and Nagle were dead, Alley and the park maintenance hand were feeling dizzy; and they began ascending the ladder. Alley reached the upper level and left the building, badly nauseated; but the park maintenance hand lost consciousness and fell from the ladder to the lower level. Firemen arrived and removed the park maintenance hand, who was revived.
