DFW Airport honors citizens who pulled a paralyzed man from a van fire at Terminal A

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport honored two local citizens who pulled a paralyzed man from a van fire at Terminal A on March 29.

Walter Vaughn and Kristina Gish were presented with "citizen recognition award" certificates by the airport's public safety department for saving T.J. Griffin from the burning vehicle.

Griffin publicly thanked Vaughn and Gish at the airport's board meeting on Thursday.

"I am here because of you," Griffin said during the presentation.

The airport released a video from a security camera that showed Griffin's van on fire and Vaughn and Gish moving him to safety.
