Brav­ery award

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

SAV­ING the life of a co-worker has earnt Gin Gin man Peter Krogh a Com­men­da­tion for Brave Con­duct in this year’s Aus­tralian Brav­ery Awards. On March 2, 2011, Mr Krogh and his col­league were re­turn­ing to Marl­bor­ough, in Cen­tral Queens­land, when they stopped at a flooded creek cross­ing. As they waited for other col­leagues to ar­rive, Mr Krogh’s co-worker waded about 3m into the wa­ter to check the level to see if it was safe to cross. The man lost his foot­ing and was dragged into the mouth of a pipe where the wa­ter was up to his chest. Mr Krogh grabbed hold of the man and, un­able to pull him out, held on to him to stop him from drown­ing un­til help ar­rived.
