Evening Post, 18 January 1913:
A BRAVE YOUNG MAN. Case of Benjamin Trumper (19 years), for rescuing J. Brown (38 years) from accident at Timaru on 20th March, 1912. The official report mentioned that as the second express, bound, for Christchurch, was coming into Timaru Station a man, who appeared to be under the influence of liquor, stepped off the platform on to the main line, and, if it, had not been for the prompt manner in which Porter Trumper jumped on to the main line, regardless of his own life and pulled him clear off the incoming train, there would have been a very serious accident, especially if the man had attempted to struggle with  Trumper. A bronze medal was awarded.
