Antonio Morgan saved Keilen Robinson from burning, St. Louis County, Missouri, July 28, 2020. Robinson, 23, remained in the driver’s seat of his car, unresponsive, after an interstate highway accident in which the car came to rest with its driver’s side against a concrete median. Among the motorists who stopped and responded to the car’s front, passenger door was Morgan, 34, business operator. After the door was opened, a fire broke out under the hood and flames issuing from the engine compartment burned against the windshield’s exterior. Morgan entered at that door, kneeled on the passenger seat, and grasped Robinson’s upper body, pulling his torso toward the door opening. Morgan withdrew, re-entered, pulled Robinson, and withdrew again. Smoke issued through the passenger-door opening. Morgan entered a third time, kneeled on the passenger seat, and released Robinson’s seat belt, withdrawing upon hearing a loud explosive sound from the car’s front end. Robinson’s upper body then fell onto the road outside the car as another man sprayed the front of the car with a fire extinguisher. Morgan returned to the car, grasped Robinson, and dragged him about 10 feet to a point on the road where a responding police officer tended to him. Flames shortly engulfed the car. Robinson, who was taken to a hospital, was not burned.
