By the time the blowtorches and cranes arrived, rescue and recovery had become simply recovery. Nevertheless, the leakage had not only continued but become more frequent. The Sandhogs also attributed their excellent record to their careful adherence to written procedures. Will she win her case or will things go south enough for Alex to find her life in danger?

    Just this past November on the East Side Access, fallen concrete killed a year-old sandhog, his father working nearby and witnessing the accident. Explains McCloy, Although leaks have been frequent, there had been no gushers since last June. Days, weeks, even months might pass before a shaper receives a shift.

    The joints between TML segments contained gaskets, which are flexible rings that compress and render the joints water-tight when the bolts are tightened. Each sandhog had his own role in the operation. Repairs will begin this morning, and hundreds of tons of clay will be dumped into the river to make a new bed over the part of the tunnel where the break occurred. Scott Chesman will next work on Second Avenue south of 72nd Street. Most sandhogs appear in little need of a gym membership and—though perhaps due as much to limited sun exposure—are often taken for a good 10 years younger.

However, she's up against a formidable defense attorney she'd rather not be and once the trial starts, she finds her case becoming harder and harder to win.
