Steven A. Wing helped to save Steven A. Rivas from an impending rock fall, Blanding, Utah, September 24, 1974. In a remote area, Rivas, 23, was caught in a rock fall and pinned by a large boulder in a cave-like opening in the steep wall of a mesa. Among those who finally arrived to aid Rivas was Wing, 23, chief ranger. Despite the threat of additional rock falls, Wing and other men worked carefully for nearly two hours in limited space, removing smaller rocks, administering oxygen to Rivas, and finally dislodging the confining boulder by means of a jack. Rivas recovered.
