"Jan, step back, you might fall!"
I could not move because my legs were shaking.
"Jan, give me your hand!"
I stretched out my hand and tried to step back, but my feet slipped from under me and I fell into the stream. The current was very strong, and I headed down the stream at a terrific speed. I could hear Kelley screaming my name but the sound of her voice faded.
About two miles down the stream a net that was placed across the stream stopped me. I held on to it and tried to scream for help, but there was no sound coming from my mouth.
I knew that Kelley must have told my parents by now that I fell into the stream. My mother will be frantic, and my father will be terrified because his brother fell into this stream over twenty years ago and he was never found.
