Fred Harry Sochor saved Margaret E. Danziger from being killed by a train, Carnegie, Pennsylvania, March 10, 1931. Miss Danziger, 22, started to cross a track on which a train was approaching at a speed of 10 m.p.h. There were snow and ice on the track, and Miss Danziger fell prone on the track when the train was about 40 feet from her. Sochor, 46, civil engineer, who was on a station platform, ran 20 feet to Miss Danziger, stepped over the rail, and pulled her from the track. As he reached a point in the clear, the cylinder of the locomotive brushed his coat. The train stopped with the front of the locomotive 20 feet beyond the point of rescue.
