In Komsomolsk-on-Amur, a veteran of the State Fire Supervision Service rescued a four-year-old child from the water. The baby did not require medical assistance, he was immediately handed over to his parents.
The incident occurred on May 1, on the banks of the Silinka River. There Ivan Myasnik rested with his former colleagues. Next to them is a family with children, who also came to rest.
At some point, Ivan heard a child crying. Running up to the water, he saw only a child’s hat. Without hesitation, he rushed into the water and pulled the baby ashore.
IA AmurMedia, citing the press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations for the Khabarovsk Territory, reports that Ivan Myasnik served in the Ministry of Emergency Situations for more than 15 years and retired from the post of head of the department for supervisory activities and preventive work in Amursk and the Amur region.
He himself does not see any heroism in his act. However, the department reported that, if not for Ivan’s quickness, the incident could have ended in tragedy – the boy began to be carried away under the bridge.
