George E. Perez helped to save Paul V. Doran and saved Rita M. Doran from burning, New Shrewsbury, New Jersey, December 25, 1974. In a highway accident, fire broke out at the rear of an automobile containing Doran, 61, and his wife, 60; and the flames quickly spread over the sedan’s right side. Perez, 29, chief computer operator, arrived as a man was trying to pull Doran through the open front window on the left side of the vehicle but was having difficulty because of his size. Together Perez and the man removed Doran from the sedan and took him some distance away. Perez then returned to the automobile, where Mrs. Doran had moved to the open window and flames had appeared in the rear-seat area. Perez pulled Mrs. Doran through the window opening. Soon afterward the entire automobile was engulfed in flames.
