During the Battle for Bastogne, on December 30 1944, P-47 fighter pilot Harry Krigg made an emergency exit out of his aircraft and landed leg broken in no-mans-land.

Shortly after Harry hit the snowy ground, 3rd Bn 506 PIR 101 Abn Medic Johnny Gibson managed to pull him into safety.

In this video, WWII historian Reg Jans tells the story.
