Michael Ollins rescued a man from assault, Chicago, Illinois, August 20, 1987. A 38-year-old man was being beaten on a crowded city street by a group of young men, some of whom were armed with tire irons. Ollins, 33, the driver of a bus that was approaching the scene, observed the assault. He stopped the bus, exited it, and approached the assailants as they continued to beat the man, who by then was losing consciousness as he lay on the pavement. Ollins told the men to stop the attack. They then threatened Ollins and scuffled briefly with him but backed away from their victim. Ollins hurriedly escorted the man to the bus, which they boarded. The man was treated at a hospital for bruises and a cut which required suturing.
