Lesbian Couple Saved Dozens of Campers from Norway Massacre


A lesbian couple were among those who rushed to the aid of young campers in Norway under siege by gunman Anders Behring Breivik last Friday.

A translation via The People's Forum:

Hege Dalen and her partner Toril Hansen were eating supper in the camping area opposite Utoya island when they started hearing gunshots and screaming….

Dalen and Hansen drove their boat to the island, and fished out of the water people who were in shock and young people who were injured and transported them ashore. Every now and then bullets almost hit the boat.

Since they couldn't fit everyone into the boat all at once, they returned to the island four times. They might have saved as much as forty people from the clutches of the killer.

Several others also rushed to the area in boats. In related news, the death toll of the youth camp massacre has been lowered to 68.
