Deaf Man Rescues People Trapped

On this date (Jan 8) in 1913, a deaf man saved himself and three others after an elevator plunged four floors in New York City. Henry Souwein was the only one still conscience. He was able to squeeze his hand into the only space rescuers could see. Someone who knew sign language was able to communicate with him, understanding his call for help, leading to everyone being rescued safely from the car.
