A police officer disregarded her own safety to help save two people from a freezing river in York.
Now PC Claire Viney has been nominated for the National Police Bravery Awards.
PC Viney risked her own life to rescue both her colleague and a member of the public from a river.
She and a colleague were called to reports of a woman in the water in York. The officers immediately rushed to her aid and attempted to pull the woman out.
In doing so, PC Viney’s colleague slipped into the river and became submerged in the icy water.
Disregarding her own safety, PC Viney climbed down the riverbank and braced herself in a submerged tree to pull her colleague to shore, whilst also trying to save the life of the woman who had initially entered the water.
PC Viney managed to radio for more officers to attend the scene, as well as fire and rescue who helped pull everyone to safety.
