    A 20-year-old Coast Guardsman named Clifford Johnson reportedly saved a number of people from the fire, but suffered burns over half his body.  He spent 21 months in the hospital and underwent numerous operations.

    Upon his release, he married his nurse and moved back to his native Missouri, but burned to death in a fiery car crash a few years later.
