Jonathan Mac Phillips saved Sherry L. Bracken and her daughter from being struck by a train, Terre Haute, Indiana, November 17, 1982. While crossing a set of railroad tracks, Mrs. Bracken, 19, who was carrying her daughter, Sherry L., 2, fell between the rails of a track on which a train was approaching at 25 miles per hour. Phillips, 27, railroad signal foreman, ran onto the track and, although the train was less than 200 feet away, pulled Mrs. Bracken clear. Phillips then picked Sherry up and handed her to her mother as the front of the train passed. None of the three was injured.
