The Three in the Basement
Firefighter Daigo: Rescuer in Orange Episode 8 opens on a rainy day as Shun heads to work and encounters Daigo along the way. Surprised by Daigo’s astuteness in reading his feelings for Yuki, Shun resolves to put in more effort and hurries ahead. During their commute, Mr. Yamagami also exchanges greetings with Daigo.
At their workplace, the team prepares for another mission before setting off. Mr. Yamagami reflects on requesting Daigo’s placement in the team for observation purposes.
En route to the rescue site, the roads are inundated by heavy flooding. Daigo ensures the safety of a young girl by placing her on a high shelf and offers his float vest to an elderly woman, awaiting the arrival of the rest of the rescue team.
Upon reaching the location, they find the basement entrance submerged underwater. The team improvises, using large partitions to isolate the entrance and employing water pumps to drain the area. However, they realize the partitions aren’t sufficient to contain the water and opt to use a plastic sheet.
Mr. Yamagami takes a daring dive into the water to position the sheet at the base, managing to secure most of it, except for a few floating sections. Despite the impending arrival of the Chofu water rescue team and the malfunctioning radio, time is running out.
Shun proposes a daring plan to use respirators for underwater breathing. Initially met with skepticism, Shun confidently explains the feasibility of his idea, eventually winning Mr. Yamagami over with his courage and determination. With the gear prepared and Shun guiding them, they plunge into the water.
Receiving a signal, the team outside starts the pump, initiating the critical phase of their rescue operation at the end of Firefighter Daigo: Rescuer in Orange Episode 8.
