Greg helped me in the Glendale train crash. I was critically injured and couldn't move. Without regard to his own safety he dug me out of the debris and stayed with me until the paramedics arrived. He was a real hero. I am so shocked and saddened by this.

In 2005 Lintner walked away with only scrapes and bruises from the Metrolink train crash in Glendale that killed 11 people. Patti Hudson, one of his fellow passengers in that crash, called the Army veteran her "hero" for staying by her side as they waited for help to arrive.
Keep in mind
- The Times initially mispelled the name of Michael Hammersley and Beverly Mosley.
- The coroner's office reported a 26th victim the afternoon of Sept. 15, but a few hours later said the tally was 25.
