Heroic Lesbian Couple Saved 40 People From Crazed Religious Extremist Gunman Anders Behring Breivik In Norway

Lesbian couple Hege Dalen and her partner Toril Hansen were quietly eating thier dinner at thier campsite Friday when they heard shots and bravely rushed to the aid  of other campers who were under siege by religious extremist gunman Anders Behring Breivik last Friday.

Translated from  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.

It’s one thing to commit an heroic act, it’s another altogether to do it four times in a row. These women are extraordinary and shold be heralded as heroes.

Well done and god bless you Hege Dalen and  Toril Hansen
