Caption: St. Louis firefighters use a basket to rescue Lester McKinney, a painter, who was overcome by heat while working on the roof of the Carondelet Branch Library, 6800 Michigan Avenue, on July 15, 1980, the hottest day of that hot summer. McKinney tried to get an early start, but the fast-rising heat caused him to collapse on the roof. The pre-dawn low that day was 82, and reached 107 by early afternoon.
