Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, Young & the Restless) 

SOAPDOM NEWSWIRE: “We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to take you live in Clear Springs where rescue teams have returned from a mission to save Senator Jack Abbott. The last known location of the Senator was found, but Senator Abbott was no longer there. We have also just learned that prominent Genoa City business woman, Katherine Chancellor, her grandson Cane Ashby, and a construction worker from the site, Jeffrey Todd Hellstrom, are considered among the missing now. Jill Foster- Abbott, the daughter of Katherine Chancellor and mother Cane Ashby, received a call from her son stating  that he and his grandmother were to meet Jeffrey Todd in the parking garage before returning to Genoa City. This call was placed moments before the collapse. Jill foster-Abbott is on hand here in Clear Springs to greet her mother and son when they are rescued. Ms. Abbott and close family friends are trying to stay hopeful. A brief update before we return to your show already in progress.  This is a quick list of victims that have been rescued and are still presumed missing courtesy of the emergency personnel on stand-by. Safely rescued with little or no injury is Nick Newman, Sharon Abbott, Noah Newman, Lauren Finmore, Maggie Sullivan, and Paul Williams. Still among the missing and unaccounted for: Victoria Newman, Katherine Chancellor, Cane Ashby, Jeffrey Todd or JT Hellstrom, Amber Moore, Adrian Corbel, and Senator Jack Abbott. As rescue attempts are made, and we receive word, you will be the first to know so stay logged onto Soapdom.com.” End report.

From the surface to somewhere under the ground, Daniel is going stir crazy waiting for word on Jack and Amber. Nikki begins to fear the worst for her daughter when Brad repots back that he and David turned up nothing. A search and rescue dog will be sent in to search for Victoria and Adrian. Jill and Nikki comfort each other though it is tragic the reason they actually have something in common -- missing and possibly hurt children. Jill would give anything to see her mother once again, even if it’s Katherine making Jill miserable. 

Below ground, Amber’s head and nose is bloodied, she is trapped in her car. Amber becomes hysterical as she looks around. Screaming and blowing her car horn hoping someone will hear and rescue her, causes an avalanche. After Amber pulls herself  together, she escapes her car by crawling out the back window.

Katherine’s arm is badly injured. Everyone is having trouble breathing. JT and Cane decide to move as far as they can rather than just sit and wait for someone to locate them. It’s a tough journey. The men have to heave heavy concrete blocks and debris out of their way to clear a path. Katherine begs the boys to go ahead and leave her behind. She feels that she is holding them back and their lives are in jeopardy. Neither will entertain the idea of leaving Kay.

It doesn’t take long before an elevator is found. Cane and JT pry the doors open for a safe refuge. Upon investigation, they can get out, but it is to climb up the elevator shaft. Two must go because they will have the force open elevator doors on other levels most likely. Katherine obviously can’t make the multi feet climb straight up. Cane and JT don’t want to leave her but it is the only way for all of them. Katherine is glad they agreed to go ahead though she doesn’t believe they will make it back for her.

Up they go! Katherine waits alone in the silence and settling dust. What on Earth went wrong, she wonders. A sound alerts Katherine someone else is on this floor. As she peers out into the destruction, Amber’s bloody head appears. Startled at first, both woman are elated to see each other. Katherine wants Amber to try and make the climb as well, but Amber refuses to leave Kay.

Amber is a great help and comfort to the elderly woman who is in pain. They have the chance to talk openly and honestly about their lives and past mistakes. Katherine understands Amber and sees a lot of herself in the young, aspiring singer. Amber appreciates Katherine’s kindness.

SOAPDOM NEWSWIRE: “This just in! More survivors have been found.. Let’s go to the exit point and get  the first look at who they are bringing out of the wreckage. It is a frenzy here on the ground only a few yards from the exit of the destruction.

"It’s Jeffrey Todd Hellstrom and Cane Ashby! Both appear to be in good condition. The scene here is frantic as we wait for word on Mrs. Chancellor. Apparently, Mr. Ashby will be returning with the rescue crews to save his grandmother. This is a startling development, no civilians have been permitted to enter the structure. A source close to the family tells us Mr. Ashby has extensive search and rescue training and experience. Now we are all left to wait once again. Mr. Ashby’s mother, Jill Foster-Abbott, seems to be a complete wreck as she stands by hoping for the safe return of her son and mother. Our hearts really go out to the families here on the sidelines of a tragic, tragic, accident. “ End report.

Jack moves on through the maze of destruction.  The settling of the building is causing more and more mini-avalanches. Jack is forced to crawl. While taking a break he finds a flyer lying about in the mess. Pulling a pen from his pocket Jack scribbles a note.  Unable to give up yet he goes further. Water leakage is causing exposed wires to spark all around him. After making it to another void Jack breaks again. This is it. The end. He reads the note, he wrote, aloud to himself. Jack makes it clear in the note that his love for Sharon is what has kept him alive this far. Jack succumbs to all that he has going  against him and passes out.

Soapdom newswire: “Here in Clear Springs  more good news is coming to us and those who wait with worry for their lost friends and loved ones. Mrs. Katherine chancellor and Amber Moore have been successfully rescued. A harness device was used to pull both woman from a lower level of the parking garage. Mr. Ashby was instrumental in the safe return and rescue of both woman. Mr. Ashby also managed to get a laugh out of the crowd when he admitted to lying about his rescue training just so he could return, into the hell he emerged from, to save his grandmother. A smile and good news is just what was needed her in Clear Springs. As survivors are rescued, we hope others are inspired and receive the same good news about their loved ones. We’ll keep you posted on the latest developments but for now back to you Linda, at Soapdom.com central office.” End report.
