Norway's Lesbian Heroes

A lesbian couple who live on an island near the one where Christian fanatic Anders Behring Breivik massacred dozens of students in Norway over the weekend, rescued dozens of people with their boat.

Hege Dalen and her partner Toril Hanse made four trips back and forth in their small boat, picking up injured, bloodied and scared young people. They say they heard gunshots and screaming, so rushed over to assist.

A translation of the story on The People's Forum reads:
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.

As an estimated 100,000 people gathered yesterday in Norway’s capital Oslo to remember those slain, local police now say 76 people are confirmed dead from the attacks, revised from an earlier estimate of 93.
