Thomas James Terry rescued Estle M. Mills from additional electric shock, Canoga Park, California, July 17, 1979. Mills, 62, received severe burns and was rendered semi-conscious as the result of an explosion in a high-voltage electrical room. Despite the continued presence of high voltage, an operating water-sprinkler system, intense heat, and dense smoke, Terry, 44, radiology technologist, ran into the room, fell into the water on the floor, crawled to Mills, then lifted and departed with him. Mills later died of his burns.
