Mark Vincent Hannan died attempting to save Samuel Greenberg from burning, Hicksville, New York, May 21, 1981. Greenberg, 54, was in the cab of a truck that crashed into a utility pole. The collision caused fire to break out in the truck’s engine compartment, and it also dislodged a 7,620-volt power line, which fell onto the truck and charged it. Hannan, 24, tool designer, ran to the passenger side of the truck for Greenberg, touched the truck, and was electrocuted. Greenberg was later removed and hospitalized.
