Sgt. 1st Class David George, stationed in South Korea, came across a car accident while driving home one night. One person on the scene was trying to pull a victim from the wrecked car unsuccessfully. SFC George handed him his cell phone and told him to call for help while George extracted the injured person from the wreckage. Writes Stars & Stripes;
“Moments before the car burst into flames, George pulled the driver to safety,” [a 2nd Infantry Division statement] said.
“Luckily I was there. I am glad to be able to have assisted,” George — a Seattle resident and a Blackhawk helicopter crew chief with the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade — was quoted as saying.
First Sgt. Jason C. Brown said George’s heroic actions came as no surprise.
“It’s very typical of Sgt. 1st Class George to assist those in need on or off duty without hesitation.”
