Barry Harold Walker helped to rescue Louis Kuritzky from burning, College Park, Maryland, December 24, 1970. When the two-door automobile containing Kuritzky, 24, medical school student, and his wife was involved in an accident, gasoline was splashed onto the pavement, the rear of the vehicle, and its roof. The fuel caught fire; and flames also broke out at the engine. Walker, 26, radio electrician, ran to the driver’s side of the automobile and opened the door. He reached into the vehicle and shook Kuritzky, who was dazed. Flames then had appeared under the dash and in the rear-seat area. Kuritzky emerged from the automobile and, by rolling on the grass, put out flames on his trousers. Walker ran to the passenger side of the vehicle; but while he was trying to open the door there, another man pulled Kuritzky’s wife through the open door an the driver’s side.
