Last weekend, the National Fire and Rescue Service received a call to an apartmentment building where there was suspicion of a woman planning to jump from a fourth-story window.
Jaunzems and his crew arrived on the scene and made their way into an apartment just below the woman. While Jaunzems waited for a fall at the window, his colleague Boris Rutkowska tried to stabilize him as firmly as possible.
Suddenly, the woman jumped.
“At that moment, I thought I must catch her and there is no option to fail,” Jaunzems said.
Jaunzems and Rutkovskim of the eighth section of the Riga Region Administration were presented with awards by the National Fire and Rescue Service and the Ministry of the Interior for their heroic act.
“Today, Minister of the Interior Rihards Kozlovskis presented the Ministry of the Interior awards “For self-denial” to the rescuers of the SGBR Riga regional fire brigade – Tomas Jaunzems and Boris Rutkovskis, thanks to which the life of human beings was rescued,” the National Fire and Rescue Service wrote on Facebook.
