Brian Michael Carter helped to save Jonathan D. Roark from burning, Dracut, Massachusetts, August 12, 2001. Roark, 28, was suspended by his safety belt in the driver’s seat of an inverted and burning car after an accident at night. At home in a nearby house, Carter, 23, college student, heard the accident, then was told to call for help by a man who had witnessed it. After doing so, Carter responded to the car. As fire conditions worsened, he and the other man stood at the driver’s side of the car and worked to free Roark. The other man lifted the car’s frame, which enabled Carter to pull Roark out. Roark walked away from the wreckage. He was not burned, but he required hospital treatment for injuries sustained in the accident.
