Documentary Film Of The Bonfire Collapse Will Make Its Local Premiere November 7

A documentary film about the Texas A&M bonfire collapse will make its premiere November 7 in Bryan/College Station.

The film, “The 13th Man”, is about the 13th and the last survivor who was rescued.

John Comstock and the film’s director, Charlie Ginn, spent this week in B/CS making public appearances promoting the film.

November 18th marks the 20th anniversary of the collapse, which killed 12 students and injured 27 others.

Comstock, who was trapped underneath the rubble for over seven hours, told students and staff at Allen Academy when he was rescued he “gave everybody a thumbs up”, then he “heard a giant cheer in the crowd. That’s when I realized there were a thousand people there.”

He also told the audience “to never give up and never quit.”
