Toronto EMS Paramedics Robert Chudoba, Craig Wilson and Bruce Newton will be recognized for their selfless actions during the rescue of a man injured in a traffic accident that occurred on September 25, 2003.

The driver of a transport truck swerved to avoid a car that spun out of control in front of him on Highway 427, north of Highway 409. The truck crashed through a concrete barrier and plunged 20 metres onto a set of railway tracks, trapping the driver inside the vehicle. The paramedics crawled into the wreckage and provided emergency medical care for three hours until the driver was rescued and transported to hospital by an air ambulance.
