Dion C. Lefebvre rescued Faith E. M. Kondusky-Sennett from burning, Wandering River, Alberta, April 27, 2012. Faith, 11, was trapped in the back seat of a pickup truck after it collided head on with another vehicle. A motorist, Lefebvre, 36, moving company operator, witnessed the accident and stopped at the scene, as did others. After tending to the occupants of the other vehicle, Lefebvre approached the pickup, which had caught fire in its engine area. Despite flames that had entered the passenger compartment and were rapidly progressing, Lefebvre forced open the back door on the passenger side. He reached over Faith, who was unconscious, and untangled her from her safety belt. With flames beginning to issue into the back-seat area from under the front seats, Lefebvre freed Faith’s feet and then, cradling her, removed her from the vehicle and carried her to safety. She was taken to the hospital but later died of her injuries. Six other occupants of the vehicles also died in the accident.
