The student at Medical University – Varna Nikolay Tsolov was distinguished with the award “Dignified Bulgarian 2017” at a ceremony, held at Marinela Hotel – Sofia, on 6.03.2017.
Nikolay is a 3rd-year student in Dental Medicine at MU-Varna. On 22nd March 2016 he saw a worried woman and stopped his car beside her. He found out that she was Marinka Bolton, who was waiting for the Emergency team to come for her husband, who had a heart attack. Nikolay took Michael Bolton to the hospital, where the sick man was hospitalized, and fortunately his life was saved.
The award was given to Nikolay by the TV producer Magardich Halvadzhiyan, who turned to the audience with the words, “I’d like to thank all Bulgarians for the fact that such dignified, good people live among us, who are ready to lend a helping hand, to do their best in order to make our life better, and not because someone requires them to do it, but simply because they are good people. This example should be given every single day by every one of us if we wish to see the light at the end of the tunnel!”
The event organizers had prepared a diploma and a medal for Nikolay Tsolov with the message “We take pride in the fact that you are a dignified Bulgarian”.
He said he was extremely happy to receive this award and promised to go on helping people in trouble.
