Robert Thomas rescued Renee Vick and Brenda G. McIntosh from burning, Fort Worth, Texas, October 5, 1975. An automobile containing Miss Vick and Miss McIntosh, each 18, was involved in an accident which ruptured the fuel tank and caused fire at the vehicle’s rear end and along its right side. Thomas, 52, electronics company shop hand, ran to the burning automobile and removed Miss Vick, who was in the left front seat. Extending his head and upper torso into the automobile, Thomas pulled Miss McIntosh, who was unconscious, to the left side of the seat and thence out of the vehicle, which soon after was totally afire. Miss McIntosh revived, and both young women recovered.
