A modest, mighty, generous individual whose parents as well as the entire country can be proud of.
The fire that claimed the lives of three girls from the Adele dance group broke out at Camp Victoria. As adults panicked and saviors looked for water, teenagers dragged half-asleep kids out of the firing wooden structure. 13-year-old Maxim Tikhonchuk rescued 15 kids or more. He didn’t have enough time to pay attention to this. The boy was in the building next door, and his responsiveness is something that many adults should learn from.
The spokesman posted about this on Facebook.
“Maxim Tikhonchuk, 13. The boy who led the kids out of the five rooms of Camp Victoria. This is the life of fifteen kids! Children who were sleeping and did not doubt anything. He just attended school on Monday with burned hands. A modest, mighty, generous individual whose parents as well as the entire country can be proud of!”
The police of the Odessa region opened a criminal case on the fact of a fire under the article outrage of fire security norms. According to the law compulsion forces, two kids were transferred to the hospital. Two camp officials are doubted under the article “outrage of fire security requirements established by law, resulting in the death of people” of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
The boy was granted a medal for saving lives.
