Henry F. Comegys, Sr., rescued Carl W. Vaughn, Jr., from burning, Centreville, Maryland, September 6, 1984. After a fiery highway accident involving another truck and a car, Vaughn, 30, was pinned inside the cab of his dump truck. Having witnessed the accident, Comegys, 48, farmer, ran into the narrow space between the trucks, both of which were burning, and climbed to the cab of Vaughn’s truck. He pulled on Vaughn, dislodging him. After both men fell from the cab, Comegys dragged Vaughn to safety. Vaughn recovered from first- and second-degree burns and other serious injuries, and Comegys from lesser burns.
