Unsung heroes of the Norway massacre: Lesbian couple saved 40 children from Anders Breivik's killing spree on Utoya Island

A married lesbian couple who saved 40 children from white supremacist Anders Breivik's murder spree at a youth summer camp have been hailed as the unsung heroes of the massacre. Hege Dalen and her partner, Toril Hansen, braved gunfire to make repeated trips to pick up frightened and wounded youngsters from the waters around Utoya Island. But their story had gone virtually unreported until now, leading some to speculate that they had been overlooked because of their sexuality.

The Talk About Equality Blog asked the question: 'If a married lesbian couple saves 40 teens from the Norway massacre and no-one writes about it, did it really happen?' The blog's writer asks readers to '[p]lease share this story and make sure people know the heroism of Hege and Toril.' Ms Dalen and Ms Hansen, for their part, with the exception of the one newspaper interview, appear to have remained relatively quiet about their part events.

In the aftermath, Ms Dalen told Helsingin Sanomat: 'We did not sleep last night at all. 'Today, we have been together and talked about the events.'
