"Jacob heard Andrew's cry for help: Without him I would have died."
"A hot avalanche gushed over him. Andreas Neuman, 26, was buried alive in the glowing lime. When the skin melted the pain was so terrible that he just wanted to die."
"Then came to the rescue. The welder Jacob Vallin, 21, heard the cries for help."
"– Without him I would have died, " says Andreas."
"On 22 december 2007, everything changed in an instant. Together with a colleague, would Andreas Neuman clear a filterficka free from lime in the kalkverket in Rättvik, a job they had done many times before. They crawled through a small gap of 50 x 50 centimetres and with a vacuum pump started sucking up the chalice. To get access everywhere, they were forced to take down a few plates sitting in the road."
"Then all of a sudden, something happened. A rumbling sound, then poured in the 300 degrees of hot cup of them. The power was so great that they were hurled into a wall. Andreas ended up over my colleague and shielded him with his body. The chalice was like quicksand, and despite the fact that Andreas was a muskelpaket at just over 100 kilos, he could not move."
"– I asked me that I would die and was screaming that I was burning up. I felt how the flesh dribbled from the legs. It was a terrible pain."
"the Welder Jacob Vallin, 21, worked on the floor above and heard the cries, which were becoming weaker."
"He ran forward to the door that the sounds came from. It was dark and the lime made it foggy and smoky, but he could discern the outline of a head."
"– I pulled for my life, but he was shattered not. It was as if he was trapped in stone."
"Andrew's heart began to beat slower, and Jacob noticed that he was on the way out. With forces he did not think he had, he took in one last time. Miraculously, it succeeded. The colleague that has been on Andreas, got the Jacob, also help to draw out."
"In the meantime, one of Jacob's colleagues sounded the alarm of the ambulance."
"Andrew, 46-degree burns over the entire body, had to amputate the left leg has undergone 16 hudtransplantationer."
"– But Jacob had I died, I had not been many seconds in the heat. He is a real hero and have a guaranteed place in heaven if I get to decide, " says Andreas."
