That Day in Dallas by Richard Trask

I just noticed that Richard Trask's book "That Day in Dallas" has the full transcript of motorcycle officer James Chaney's 11-22 interview on WFAA. I've been looking for this for awhile. (Has anyone seen this?) Anyhow, Amazon let me "Look inside" on one page of the interview, but shut me out of the other. If anyone has the book and can tell me what he says after the word "apparent" on page 115, I'd be greatly appreciative. Based upon Wikipedia and other sources, I believe he continues on to describe Connally's getting hit and where he thinks the shots came from, but would like his exact words.

Thanks

" ... it was apparent to me that we're being fired upon. I went ahead of the President's car to inform Chief Curry that the President had been hit. And then he instructed us over the air to take him to Parkland Hospital, and he had Parkland standing by. I went on up ahead of the - to notify the officer who was leading the escort that he had been hit and that we're going to have to move out. [The shot,] it was back over my right shoulder."

Thanks so much, Bill. Apparently Chaney didn't mention Connally until later. Eventually, I'll buy the book eventually but right now money is getting tight. Thanks again.
