Piantanida, his oxygen cu t I face plate apparently failed. off, managed to gasp out, "Emergency!" into the radio transmitter aboard the gondola of the balloon. He then was parachuted to earth Sunday and taken unconscious from the open gondola. 'Piantanida, 33, of Brick Town, N.J., was hospitalized here SERVICES BY COBB • FUNERAL HOME ; COURTEOUS SERVICE »»»»»»»•«••»»•«««'««*• Ed Yost, program director for Raven Industries, which built the balloon, said today that examination of the suit showed no breaks and there were no cracks in the helmet. What caused the seal around the face plat to give way has not been determined, Yost said. ' Medical technicians in Sioux Falls, S.D., meanwhile studied blood samples in an attempt to determine how the oxygen loss has affected Piantanida's brain and other organs. The balloon was launched Sunday morning at Sioux Falls, 65 miles west of this southwestern Minnesota city. It was May Day, and the daredevil from ^ew Jersey wanted to top the free-fall record of 85,523 fet now held by a Russian, Eugene Andreev. Piantanida had another goal. He wanted to learn whether a man could fall from the stratosphere at supersonic speed without a stabilizing device and without impairing health. An ascent to 125,000 feet was planned. The launch was uneventful. Piantanida's attractive wife, Janice, watched as the balloon climbed 1,000 feet a minute. She heard her husband say, by radio, that everything was fine. The balloon soared to 57,000 feet before there was any indication of trouble. NOTICE! Acme Termite Co. has purchased the Walls Certified Termite Service.
