Richard W. Stock saved Jarred F. Preston from burning, Tyler, Texas, March 27, 1986. In a highway accident, Jarred, eight months old, was pinned in the rear seat of a car driven by his mother. Gasoline from the car’s fuel tank flowed onto the highway as a man tried to free Jarred from the passenger side; when the gasoline ignited, the man was set aflame. Stock, 35, then ran to the driver’s side of the car and, despite flames feeding on the rear of the car, entered and freed Jarred. He emerged from the car with Jarred and carried him to safety.
