A hero student pulled eight OAP passengers to safety after their mini-bus crashed onto a frozen lake in Chelyabinsk, Russia, and began to sink.
Rescuer Pavel Rogozhin, 21, had been on his way home from college when he saw the bus career off the road onto the ice in temperatures of minus 15 degrees C.
"The bus had rolled over five or six times before it started to sink under the cracked ice.
"Anyone would have done the same," modest Pavel told local media.
As the ice cracked all around him, hero Pavel pulled all eight passengers to safety from a broken bus window .
"Luckily, the ice covering the lake was strong enough to support me, so even though the bus was sinking I was able help the passengers get out.
"It was pretty hairy though," he admitted.
A police spokesman said: "Thanks to the actions of this young man, eight people are alive who would otherwise be dead."
