Donald Lee Dobson saved Adele T. Bullick from burning, Spring City, Pennsylvania, May 26, 1988. Mrs. Bullick, 62, was in her third-floor apartment when fire broke out in the bedroom. Dobson, 31, maintenance superintendent, was working on the building’s roof when he saw smoke. He entered the building and ran to Mrs. Bullick’s apartment, where he broke down her locked door. Dobson entered the apartment’s living room but was forced out by dense smoke, which precluded visibility. After catching his breath, Dobson crawled toward Mrs. Bullick’s bedroom and found her on the floor, in the bedroom doorway. He seized Mrs. Bullick and, crawling backward, dragged her from the apartment. Both Dobson and Mrs. Bullick were hospitalized overnight for smoke inhalation, and they recovered.
