On March 15, while passing the bank of the Velikaya River, Hung saw two children, who are 10 years old and 11 years old, fall into the river due to the broken ice covering the surface of the river.

Hung and other people immediately jointly saved the children. With his medical knowledge, Hung managed to maintain their body temperature, thus saving their lives.

Earlier, Governor of Pskov Mikhail Vedernikov handed over a thank-you letter to Andrey Strugin who was the first person to detect the two victims and give them timely help.
