Archie J. Mac Donald helped attempt to save Lloyd J. Hill from burning, Cleveland, Nova Scotia, January 30, 1981. Hill, 34, was in a basement bedroom of his house when fire broke out in the furnace room. In another basement bedroom, Mac Donald, 32, asbestos worker, was awakened by heat and smoke. After alerting a neighbor, he re-entered the house but became disoriented on descending the basement stairs. When the neighbor broke a window, allowing him to breathe fresh air, he climbed back up the stairs, fled the house, and joined the neighbor at Hill’s bedroom window. He reached through that window and pulled Hill out, with the neighbor lifting Hill from inside. Mac Donald recovered from smoke inhalation, but Hill could not be revived.
