Hero soldier saves ‘kidnap’ victim

His quick thinking, reactions and bravery should be applauded.

The brave man didn’t think twice about saving the woman – and seemed to be completely oblivious to the camera crew surrounding them

This is the moment a brave soldier rescues a kidnap victim being held at gun point by a crazed attacker. But what he didn’t realise was, in his haste to save the woman, he had accidentally walked straight onto a film set.

The Russian soldier seemed to be oblivious to the surrounding cameras and film crew as he tried to sneak up behind the ‘attacker’ and grab him from behind. Immediately pinning the actor to the floor, the soldier ‘rescues’ the woman before concerned crew members suddenly rush over to the ground and help the actor back to his feet.

It is not clear whether the actor was injured in the incident.

The bizarre video has now been uploaded to Facebook where it has clocked up a massive 81,000 views in just seven hours. Viewers were quick to offer their opinion on the footage, with one writing: “Excellent from the solider, bad for the [film] shooting. Do you not put up security fences?”

Another added: “Haha, he [the soldier] had good intentions, that’s what counts.”
