Kimberly J. Schuttler attempted to rescue Josephine Adams and helped to rescue Joseph A. DeVito from a runaway automobile, Pompano Beach, Florida, November 11, 1992. Ms. Adams, 67, was the front-seat passenger of an automobile driven by DeVito, 75, when DeVito lost consciousness and slumped against the steering wheel. Ms. Adams called for help as the car continued on the six-lane highway. Ms. Schuttler, 28, pilot, was driving on the same highway; when she saw what was happening, she parked and ran after the runaway car. Ms. Adams opened the passenger door and exited the car as it traveled out of control. When Ms. Schuttler caught up to the car, she reached inside the open driver’s window and turned the steering wheel to keep the car from going into the lanes of oncoming traffic. A man from a nearby business saw what was happening and joined Ms. Schuttler at the car. As he attempted entry through the driver’s window, the car headed toward a glass bus shelter along the highway. Again Ms. Schuttler reached inside the car and turned the steering wheel to keep the car from crashing. The man then entered the car and took it to a stop, at a point about a quarter-mile from where Ms. Schuttler had begun to chase it. Ms. Adams and DeVito were treated at a hospital and released. Ms. Schuttler had sore muscles and a bruised foot, and she recovered.
