Tuttle, help

with the sheet there.

You'll find 'em

in the side drawer.

Better get Frank.

He's running a temperature.

I think he's asleep.

Wake him up.

Get him.

You pull him through, doc,

you should be set for life.

How do you mean?

That's Warren h. Donovan.

Means nothing to me.

He's supposed to be

worth a hundred million.

The sky's the limit on your fee.

Money can't help him now.

All right, boys.

Thanks very much.

That's swell.

You can go.

Frank'll be here in a minute.

Honey, we'll need your help.

Will you get

the gowns and things?

Hurry up, Frank.

Why weren't you in your office?

The whole wide world

is my office.

How bad is he?

Both legs completely gone.

His chest is crushed.

Tuttle, you better

get into the hospital.

If we pull him through,

we'll need a lot of things.

Right. I'll call you

as soon as I get to town.

We'll know for sure by then.

We'll need adrenaline,

and I'd start plasma right now.

Frank, you take care

of the chest.

I'll do the legs.



What's the pulse?


I think he's gone.


Let Frank do it.

Right into the heart.

Not a flicker.

Try a massage.

Still nothing.

Any idea who the poor man was?

Some millionaire,

name of Donovan,

Tuttle said.

Absolutely nothing.


Any ideas?

I wouldn't have wasted

this much time.

All right, that's that.

Thanks for covering for me, pat.

Tuttle hates my guts.

He'd love to see

his brother in my job.

Well, you go on back to bed.

I'll tell him you were sick.

Make out the death certificate

first, though.

That's not my department.

Why don't I park

Mr. Donovan in the garage?

All right. Thanks.

Wait a minute.

Hold everything.

Watch the current,

will you, Frank?

Jan, give us readings.

What's the big idea?

I'm curious, that's all.
