Sidney R. Snarr helped to rescue Kenneth D. Sanders from burning, Temagami, Ontario, June 8, 1984. Sanders, 22, was trapped in an overturned and burning van following a highway accident. Snarr, 57, truck driver, observed the accident and ran to the scene. Joined by another man, he attempted to remove Sanders through a hole in the windshield, but Sanders’ foot was lodged underneath a seat. Snarr reached through flames to free Sanders’ foot. He and the other man then pulled Sanders from the van seconds before it exploded. Sanders suffered multiple injuries; he recovered. Snarr received second- and third-degree burns to his arms, and he too recovered.
