Harry F. Druck saved Laura C. Rogers from being killed by a train, York, Pennsylvania, February 11, 1933. Laura, 8, ran on a crossing to a track on which a passenger train was approaching at a speed of 10 to 15 m.p.h. There was thin ice on the track. Druck, 35, taxicab driver, who was on the opposite side of the track, ran 12 feet to the track, placed one foot between the rails, grasped Laura, lifted her, and swung back away from the track. When he took hold of Laura, the locomotive, which then was running at a reduced speed of 4 to 6 m.p.h., was about 12 feet from him.
