People running around in panic.
Stretch asks what the problem is, bystanders reply ‘people trapped, area on fire, helicopter wreckage burning’.
Stretch looks for the fuel tank and sees it with part of the wreckage, he stretches his arms and lifts the 1/2 ton wreckage away from the buildings.

Page 5 – 7
Using his amassing strength even when his limbs are very thin he starts to move away rubble to open a passageway for escape. With the skills he has in escapology and science he is very careful about which bits he moves and which need to be left to hold the rest up.
As Stretch moves some rubble he starts a gas leak, now he needs to be careful not to cause an explosion. He is glad he moved the fuel tank.
He moves the last obstacles to escape and the six trapped dirty, injured, but alive people can scrabble out.
