Kerry W. Clark helped to save David G. Hall and Eric S. Frey from exploding ammunition, Medina, Ohio, February 7, 1999. After their six-seat airplane crashed in a wooded area and caught fire, Hall, 33, and Frey, 38, both special agents of a federal bureau, were pulled, unconscious, from the wreckage by a co-worker, who had escaped the plane through its windshield. The plane contained firearms and a large quantity of ammunition that had begun to explode as heat from the growing flames intensified. From his home a quarter-mile away, Clark, 49, truck driver, had heard the plane crash. He ran to the scene. The plane engulfed by flames by then with ammunition continuing to explode, Clark and the victims’ co-worker together dragged Hall, then Frey, farther away, to a point in the woods offering some protection. Hall and Frey required hospitalization for their injuries, Hall’s including a burn to his left hand.
