– We found out that both the boy and the teacher fainted during classes, and the 48-year-old was unable to get out of the room. So we already had in mind that carbon monoxide might be escaping, explained Staff Sergeant Mateusz Bielecki, one of the policemen who participated in the incident.

The officers ran inside and noticed a man lying on the ground, convulsing, losing consciousness and unable to move. They helped take him outside.

After taking him out of the building, he was taken care of by paramedics who were already on site and helped the 8-year-old boy. Both victims were taken to hospital.

Constable Szymon Kużniewski, the second policeman taking part in the events, added that he did not expect such a patrol and such situations do not happen often. – I feel fulfilled that I managed to help and save this man's life – he added.
