Family Rescued in Gulf, Sharks Kill Young Son July 4 Events May Be Farewell to Fireworks By JOHN MUELLER Associated Press Writer PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) After 13 hours adrift in the Gulf of Mexico, Edward Horhe, his wife and five children were elated to see a rescue plane. Then the sharks hit. "We didn't know the sharks were around until the very last," Home said Tuesday of an attack that fatally wounded Billy, 10. Another son, Edward Jr., 3, also died, apparently of exposure or drowning. "The shark hit the boy as soon as the plane spotted us," Home said from a hospital bed at Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City, where the family was taken after being rescued. "Why hi 'lit our son and not .us, I'll new» know," he said of one shark that mangled Billy's arms and legs. "We .were strictly in the hands of God." Home, 43, his wife, Diane, 34, and children Billy, Edward Jr., Diana Jo, 14, Gerald Paul, 11, and Melissa, 4, were on a vacation cruise from their home in Houston, Tex., to the Bahamas when tragedy struck. Four other children did not make the trip. The survivors were admitted to the Tyndall hospital for observation, spokesmen said. Home said the family left the Florida Panhandle city of Carrabelle late Monday aboard their 43-foot boat, headed for Tarpon Springs, north of St. Petersburg. "Two hours out, we hit the darnedest storm we ever saw," Home, a motel broker, told his oldest son, James Edward, in a telephone call home. "There were 16-foot waves crashing over the deck. It just busted the boat open. "We stayed aboard as long as we could, 'til the waves ripped off the sides," Home later told newsmen. "And finally, it was gone. We tied each other together and stayed around the life ring." Coast Guard officials said they responded to the craft's distress call, radioed at 11 p.m. Monday, by sending out two aircraft that searched throughout the night and after daybreak. At about noon, an airplane piloted by Coast Guard Lt. Col. Jack Arney spotted the survivors, clad in life jackets and clinging to a single life ring. "They were kicking, thrashing the water, and there was a number of sharks surrounding them," Arney said. He said there were eight to a dozen sharks in the water, "1? feet away, just lying there with their noses pointed towards the family."

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commi ssion already has tried to ban use of firecrackers. But they remain legal, at least for now, in 18 states. The commission ban had been set to go into effect June 18, but the industry opjwsed the ban as well as proposed new safety and labeling requirements on other types of fireworks, legal in 33 status. So the action fizzled into a The center of the opposition had been fireworks makers in Oklahoma and Hong Kong, as well as Chinese-American residents of Hawaii, who complained that firecrackers are used in some of their religious observances. The commission says • .firecrackers were responsible for a major share of the 6,500 fireworks-related injuries last year. But the industry challenged the figures, and. pointed out that the only deaths last year resulted from public fireworks displays, which would not be banned. The largest firecrackers, cherry bomb's, M-8ps and silver salutes, have been illegal since 1967 except to scare birds away from crops. Such items as Roman candles and sparklers would not he banned, but would have to meet safety standards. Both sides agree that fireworks now are safer than ever.
