Woman Saves Man Who Was Set On Fire - Philadelphia News, Weather and Sports from WTXF FOX 29

A man in Lehigh County could owe his life to a volunteer election worker who pulled him out from under a burning car.

This happened on Brookdale Street in Allentown, around 11:30 Tuesday morning.

21-year-old Milagros Cintron was passing out flyers with another volunteer when she saw flames shooting out of a garage.

Milagros says that she dropped her flyers and immediately pulled Stephen Plueler out and hosed him down.

She told her volunteer partner Eli Rodriguez to call for help. The pair then banged on the locked front door to get Plueler's wife out of the shower."

Shepherdsville woman saves man's life - wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather & Sports
"SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Some quick thinking by a Denny's waitress in Shepherdsville may have saved a man's life.

Sandy Beanblossom has worked at Denny's for 19 years. In late January, she noticed something was wrong with a customer.

"I offered him some water, and when he tried to take the drink of water he couldn't lift his arm," said Beanblossom. "But he got his water to his mouth with his other hand. And when he did, it just drained out of his mouth, so it's one of the signs of stroke."

Beanblossom is taking classes to become a nurse and quickly recognized she needed to call 911. Bullitt County EMS quickly arrived and transported the customer to Jewish Hospital in Louisville.

"He was a Colonel for Homeland Security, which, that's good, we're glad to save any military man but we'd do it for anybody," said Beanblossom.

"A man was rescued on Sunday from the ocean off the coast of Hatteras Village – ironically just north of the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum.

Meghan Rafferty of Perth Amboy, NJ – who is seven months pregnant – was vacationing with relatives in a rental house on Lighthouse Road and heard cries for help while walking on the beach with her husband Barry at about 4 p.m."
