In Russia Boxers Help, Not Fight

trust in humanity

Boxers from the restive Russian republic of Dagestan are being hailed as heroes after saving passengers from a burning tram.

The athletes, in Khabarovsk for the Russian boxing championships, were jogging around the Arsenalets Palace of Sports when they spotted the burning tramcar. The group helped to break the tram’s windows and hauled about 20 people to safety, an act for which they’ve received bravery awards from the local mayor.
