EL PASO, Texas -- On November 18, 1999, the annual Texas A&M Bonfire collapsed during construction, killing 12 and injuring 27. The events of that day changed many lives forever.

John Comstock, a Texas A&M student who was the last one pulled from the debris, is the focus of a new documentary from El Paso filmmaker Charlie Minn called "The 13th Man."

The movie will be shown for one week beginning this Friday at the Montwood Movies 7 at 2200 North Yarbrough.

Minn discussed the movie on ABC-7 at Four with Stephanie Valle. You can watch it in the video player at the top of this article.
