Lesbian Couple Save 40 From Norwegian Shooter

Lesbian Couple Save 40 From Norwegian Shooter


A lesbian couple dodged bullets to save as many as 40 people who became the target of the shooter in Norway, who is being detained for killing at least 76 people on Friday.

Hege Dalen and her partner, Toril Hansen, were having dinner at a campsite opposite Utoyan Island when they heard screaming and gunshots coming from the island. The couple hopped in their boat and drove across the water, picking up groups of fleeing young people, according to Finnish news site

Because they could not help all of the people at once, the couple made four trips and were able to rescue an estimated 40 people as bullets hit the side of their boat.

"We did not sleep last night at all," Dalen said in a translated version of the article.

Anders Behring Breivik's shooting attack on Utoyan, killing 68, followed a bombing in Oslo that resulted in the death of eight people, CNN reports. Breivik is being identified as a right-wing extremist who objects to the increasing presence of Islamic culture in Europe.
