Jupp O. Norhausen rescued a woman from burning, Port Orange, Florida, May 12, 2003. A 47-year-old woman was in the bathroom of her rented, one-story home as fires burned in both its living room and kitchen. From his house on the same property, her landlord, Norhausen, 53, electrical engineer, discovered the fire. He responded to the scene and gained access to the unit, finding it filled with dense smoke that virtually precluded visibility. Crawling past flames in both burning areas, he searched for the woman, going from the living room through the kitchen and bedroom before finding her in the shower. Norhausen took her to the floor, then pulled on her as they crawled to the living room and outside to safety. The woman required hospitalization for burns to the upper part of her body, and Norhausen sustained a blistered hand, from which he recovered.
