Oh, yeah. Damn. My watch is busted.
Hey, Rookie. Be cool. Just stay with
me. This is what we do.
(still tapping his watch)
I seem nervous, huh?
Frank laughs. Gibson grins, relaxes a bit. Frank checks his
ROLEX DIVER'S WATCH. Multiple SIRENS fill the dawn.
(through walkie talkie)
...two Con Ed men trapped in an
underground electrical conductor vault.
Frank's eyes harden. His game face sets up.
EXT. MANHATTAN BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS
A tableau of impending danger. Thick black OIL bleeds from
teh truck onto the street...pouring underneath the rig...and
into the MANHOLE.
POLICE urgently cordon off the area, evacuating the workers.
EMERGENCY PERSONNEL deal with the badly injured TRUCK DRIVER.
Firemen wedge sandbags between the hull of the truck and the
three-quarters covered manhole -- trying to divert the oil
away from the underground vault.
FIRE COMMANDER O'CONNELL yells at his men to finish the job
and get the hell away.
The BIG TRUCKS ARRIVE. PUMPER ENGINE and Frank's LADDER
TRUCK -- rapidly guided into position by men on the ground.
Frank, Gibson, Butch and the rest of the unit are on the
ground instantly and ready for orders. They are looking at a
nightmare ready to happen. Frank takes in everything.
