Jo Ann Louise Klein saved Dennis Killough from burning, Vacaville, California, February 18, 1971. When his automobile was involved in a highway accident at night and turned over onto its top, Killough, 20, sugar cutter, was injured and rendered unconscious. Mrs. Klein, 38, ran to the side of the inverted vehicle, on which fire had broken out at the front end. The flames were spreading into the interior as, with some difficulty, Mrs. Klein freed Killough and pulled him from the automobile. As she was dragging him away from the burning vehicle, the fire greatly increased; and soon afterward the automobile was completely engulfed in flames. Killough recovered from his injuries.
