Raimie Finn died attempting to save Jonathan L. Douthitt from being hit by a train, Port St. Lucie, Florida, September 27, 1984. Jonathan, 10, lay on the rear seat of a school bus that had stalled on a railroad track. As a train approached, Raimie, 12, student, and two others, all of whom had been sitting in the front of the bus, began to escape. Rather than leave the bus, Raimie turned and ran to the back seat, where she alerted Jonathan. After they attempted to open the bus’s emergency door, which had been locked, they turned and began to run toward the front door. The train struck the bus, and both Jonathan and Raimie were killed.
