Claude Albritton saved Christopher A. Lee from suffocation, Mobile, Alabama, January 20, 1976. Fire broke out in one end of a house trailer in which Christopher, 18 months, was asleep in one of the middle bedrooms. Among those attracted was Albritton, 42, aircraft engine assembler. Flames were rising above the trailer as Albritton climbed into Christopher’s room via the window, through which heavy smoke was issuing. Landing on the bed, Albritton noted that flames burned on the opposite wall. He probed the bed but failed to find Christopher. After climbing outside briefly, Albritton probed further and found Christopher unconscious under the bed. Albritton thrust the boy through the window to his mother and then climbed out. Christopher was revived.
