Paul Overby, one of two drivers trapped in the cab of a truck, is pulled to safety by a rope on the Pit River Bridge, over Shasta Lake, California on 3 May 1953. Overby and co-driver Hank Baum were rescued moments before the cab crashed and burned the rocks below. Virginia Schau was on fishing trip when she saw the accident, she grabbed her camera as her husband and another motorist rescued the drivers. Schau’s photo won the $10 prize in the Sacramento Bee’s weekly photo contest as well as making her the first woman and second amateur to win the Pulitzer prize for photography
