Douglas Stewart Lowe helped to save Robert D. Dunmall from burning, Pocahontas, Alberta, May 23, 1981. Following an accident, Dunmall, 28, was unconscious and pinned in the front-seat area of his automobile, which was aflame. Lowe, 33, helicopter pilot, opened the driver’s door and leaned inside the auto. With the help of another man, he attempted unsuccessfully to free Dunmall. Despite heat, smoke, and increasing flames under the hood of the auto, Lowe completely entered the rear-seat area to lift Dunmall as the other man pulled him. Forced out by heat and smoke, Lowe and the other man again pulled Dunmall; they freed him shortly before the auto was completely engulfed in flames. Dunmall recovered from his injuries.
