On July 22, 1975, photographer Stanley J. Forman rushed to the scene of a fire in Boston. A young woman, Diana Bryant, and a very young girl, Tiare Jones were seeking help. At the very instant the ladder reached them, the fire escape gave way. Bryant was pronounced dead at the scene. The young girl lived. Photo coverage from the tragic event garnered Stanley Forman a Pulitzer Prize. But more important, his work paved the way for Boston and other states to mandate tougher fire safety codes.
