Malcolm T. Morgan helped to rescue Brandon W. McClure from burning, Seminole, Oklahoma, June 5, 2006. McClure, 23, was the driver of a car that left the highway, struck a concrete culvert, and broke into flame at its back end. Rendered unconscious, he remained in the driver’s seat as flames grew and entered the back-seat area of the car. Morgan, 54, aircraft maintenance technician, came upon the scene while driving on the highway and stopped, as did another motorist. Despite blistering heat from the nearby flames, Morgan approached the driver’s side of the wrecked car and with the other man reached through the window of the driver’s door, grasped McClure, and pulled him from the vehicle. They dragged him across the highway to safety. McClure was hospitalized for treatment of extensive injuries and severe burns. Morgan sustained a burn to his right hand, which was treated at the scene. He recovered.
