Ukrainian border guard from Mukacheve squad rescued two illegal migrants from Vietnam, who fell through the ice in Choronda canal. This was written on Facebook by Oleg Slobodyan, Assistant Head of Ukraine’s State Border Guard.
"Border patrol detained two citizens of Vietnam not far from the border. A few minutes later the Hungarian border guards reported about the arrest of 4 Indian citizens in this area immediately after they crossed the state border. Later the border patrol also spotted women in this direction who, noticing guards, started to escape towards the border through Choronda canal, but fell through the ice and began drowning,” Slobodyan wrote.
Senior border guard immediately rushed to help them.
"As a Hungarian bank of the canal is more gentle, women were pulled to the separation line. The Hungarian border patrol also came soon, and poor people were provided first aid.
Border guards detained 8 migrants in total.
The border guard who saved two women will receive the award for determined and professional actions.
