George A. Blackstock saved G. Carl Jett from suffocation, Cumming, Georgia, August 5, 1930. Jett, 40, was overcome by fumes of exploded dynamite at the bottom of a well 43 feet deep. Blackstock, 40, farmer, entered the well, descending on niches dug in the sides to Jett, and tied a rope around him. Jett was then drawn to the top, and Blackstock ascended on the niches. When Blackstock got close to the top, he was so affected by the fumes that he feared he would fall. Persons then grabbed him and aided him out of the well. He was disabled a week from the effect of the fumes. Jett was revived.
