Amid flames and explosions, three strangers’ lives intertwined in a dramatic way in front of DFW Airport’s Terminal A when T.J. Griffin’s van caught fire and Walter Vaughn, a Freedom Park valet driver, and Kristy Dana Gish, who was arriving for a flight, rushed to T.J.’s aide about 6 a.m. March 29. T.J. is disabled from a football injury he received during his senior year at Trinity High School in Euless.
For their heroic actions, Kristy and Walter received Citizens Recognition Awards at the DFW Board of Directors meeting last week.
