Jackie R. Medley saved Johnny W. Wilson from burning, Versailles, Missouri, February 3, 1993. Wilson, 29, was asleep in his bedroom after fire broke out in the living room of his mobile home and spread. After others attempted unsuccessfully to rescue him, a neighbor, Medley, 42, disabled truck driver, entered the smoke-filled mobile home through its back door and crawled into Wilson’s bedroom. With visibility restricted by the smoke, Medley located Wilson in his bed, then pulled him to the floor and dragged him out of the mobile home through the rear door. The structure was shortly engulfed in flame. Both Wilson and Medley were treated for smoke inhalation, and they recovered.
