Rescue workers held Caleb back best as they could. "Easy there, let her get out, let her get out."
Karen looked up from the ground, where she had watched her step as she paused. Her eyes met Caleb's and she smiled, tiredly, but honestly glad to see him." I'm ok. We're ok."
But she spoke too soon, Pete's smile wiped off of his face and he pushed harder to dive at her, cursing at the men in his way. "Karen, God, look out!!"
She looked at him, surprised, and then up at where he pointed. Just as she looked up she was knocked off her feet by a piece of falling building, it made contact with her temple and caused her to tumble down the incline up to the garage rubble.
The workers were so shocked, they didn't bother pushing Pete or Caleb back after that.
"Karen? Karen?? Oh God, oh God, baby, hey, look at Dad, look at Dad. . ." Running over, Pete rolled her from her side to her back, touching her face lightly.
