Levi R. May saved Roland O. Rovetto from burning, Challis, Idaho, June 24, 1994. Rovetto, 57, was unconscious and trapped in the driver’s seat of his automobile after a traffic accident in which the car left the highway and caught fire. A motorist, May, 19, tile apprentice, stopped at the scene. He approached Rovetto’s car and, as flames spread from the engine area, entered it through its front passenger door. May tried to pull Rovetto from the driver’s seat, but Rovetto was pinned in the wreckage. May then went to the driver’s side of the burning car, reached through the window, and freed Rovetto. Returning to the passenger side, he fully entered the car, grasped Rovetto, and pulled him out of the car shortly before its interior was engulfed by flame. Rovetto was hospitalized for multiple injuries received during the accident. May showed signs of smoke inhalation, and he recovered.
