John W. Weisenberger helped to rescue Stefan Rubrich from burning, Mount Clemens, Michigan, December 16, 1975. When fire in his mobile home caused dense smoke, Rubrich, 80, was overcome and fell to the floor in the living area of the trailer. Weisenberger, 27, water plant operator, and a fellow worker were attracted by the flames. Weisenberger entered the smoke-filled trailer with a jacket over his head and crawled to Rubrich. The other man, with a water-soaked shirt over his head, followed. Together, Weisenberger and his fellow worker dragged Rubrich out of the mobile home, which soon afterward was completely filled with flames. Rubrich recovered from burns he had sustained.
