Marc L. Tercier rescued Terrance Macrae from burning, Ladysmith, British Columbia, September 28, 1996. Macrae, 25, was semi-conscious in his van after it had overturned onto its passenger side in a highway accident and caught fire. A resident of the area, Tercier, 40, self-employed, heard the accident and responded to the scene. He approached the roof of the burning vehicle and ripped at the canvas sides of its pop-up section, which had opened. Thus creating a means of access, Tercier stooped and entered the van as flames on it grew quickly. He grasped Macrae and pulled him out of the van, then went back to it to look for others. The van was engulfed by flames and was destroyed. Macrae received hospital treatment for minor injury and burns.
