Brave soldier decorated

A COLONEL has been awarded the 2001 Prize for Military Action after rescuing three airmen from a helicopter in flames.

Colonel Márian Dzurilla from Prešov last year saved the men from a helicopter that had crashed at the Prešov airbase. Braving the roaring flames in the cockpit Colonel Dzurilla opened an emergency escape hatch and dragged the men from the helicopter.

In accepting the prize he admitted that he had felt scared, but that his main concern had been for the men in the helicopter.
