Albert B. Taylor saved Wilma M. Hinds from being killed by train, Carnegie, Pennsylvania, October 16, 1930. Wilma, 9, started to cross a track on which a train was approaching at a speed of 15 m.p.h., and she became confused and fell on the track when the locomotive was 25 feet from her. Taylor, 47, clergyman, who was in poor health, sprang six feet to Wilma just as she rolled farther from him. He fell with one knee on a rail, and then stretching out on the rail, Taylor reached forward and grasped Wilma by the waist. He jerked her off the track and at the same time rolled clear of the rail when the locomotive was two feet from him.
