Freddie F. Brimmer, Jr., helped to save Angie Andujar from burning, Arlington, Texas, June 28, 1990. Dazed, Mrs. Andujar, 36, was in the driver’s seat of a pickup truck that caught fire following a two-vehicle accident. The other vehicle, also a pickup, lay on its side, aflame, a short distance away. Brimmer, 30, aircraft mechanic, drove upon the scene and approached Mrs. Andujar’s pickup, joining a man there who was attempting her rescue. Despite growing flames and intense heat, they removed Mrs. Andujar through the driver’s door of her truck and carried her to safety shortly before both trucks were engulfed in flame. Mrs. Andujar required extensive hospitalization for severe injuries. Brimmer received burns to his hands, and he recovered.
