A Marine made the ultimate sacrifice as he pulled his college friend to safety after a small plane crash in Kansas.

After surviving a fiery plane crash in Kansas in which three of the five passengers died instantly, Anderson, a 27-year-old Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, crawled into the burning fuselage to drag 22-year-old Hannah Luce to safety. Anderson guided Luce to a nearby road, where a passerby called for help. Marine, son and friend Austin Anderson later died from burns sustained while rescuing Luce who is now the only surviver to come out of the tragic accident.
Austin Anderson in every sense of the word was and will always be remembered as a true hero.
