P: But the pull of the cable was too much.
Q: He could hardly feel the cUble, slipping through his fingers, ripping off his gloves, and streaking over the railing like an escaping snake.
R: It smashed his hands hard against the top of the railing, causing a split - second feeling of fierce pain followed by numbness.
