Christopher J. Young saved Donald H. Stratton from assault, Richmond, Virginia, November 4, 1986. Donald, an infant, was being held by a nurse in the hallway of a doctor’s office when a man armed with two loaded guns entered the office and fatally wounded the nurse. Donald fell to the floor. The gunman then shot at others in the office, including Donald’s mother, who was also fatally wounded. Young, 30, salesman, who was in the doctor’s waiting room, fled the building. Hearing Donald cry, Young cautiously re-entered the office and found that the gunman, who was lying near Donald, had shot and wounded himself. Although the gunman was still armed, Young approached, seized Donald, and took him to safety outside. As they fled, the gunman fired another shot; he died later. Donald was not injured.
