The Japanese withheld their fire until he was within 100 yards of our troops; then the Japs shot him enough to break him down so he couldn't go any further. They figured that we would send several men out after him, and that they could then kill them. After waiting some time for us to rescue him, the Japs finally killed the wounded man.
