Michael Earl Ballou helped to rescue Harold F. Senke from burning, Elbridge, New York, April 29, 1981. Senke, 49, was the driver of a truck that overturned and caught fire. Ballou, 22, auto body repairman, and another man ran to the truck, and despite rapidly increasing flames, kicked at the windshield until it became dislodged. Ballou and the other man discarded the windshield and reached inside for Senke as flames started to spread into the cab. They removed him from the truck moments before the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames. Senke recovered from the burns he had sustained.
