By the time the kindergartener's parents found out last Saturday that he'd
fallen through a manhole into a large underground cistern, he'd already been
fished out by the former emergency medical tech and another neighbor,
carried home, and the pediatrician found to look him over for anything
beyond bruises and a bloody nose.

At suppertime when the EMT (normally our cassandra, hyper-vigilant)
apologized for the manhole being open while the maintenance committee fixed
some plumbing, his father just smiled and gestured to where the child
animatedly retold the story to the other children, saying that he was
enjoying being a hero.
