March 10, 1995, during the assault Bamut, reconnaissance platoon under the command of Sergeant Blarneyskogo broke into the house where the militants detained children to a "human shield." Gunmen opened fire dagger to regain the hostages, and Blarneysky decided to carry the children of a fire.
 Platoon Blarneyskogo saved then eighteen children, eight of them passed himself sergeant. The soldiers endured at the hands of children, covering them with his body, no other way to save them was not simple. Under heavy fire, the soldiers fell one by one, but saved the children. All the children were alive, the eldest girl, Tanya Blank, was slightly wounded in the leg.

Being injured, Blarneysky returned back to the seriously wounded soldier. Leading machine-gun fire and restraining militants, he lasted until reinforcements arrived — advanced detachment of 879 soldiers ODSHB who drove the enemy.

The story of Tatiana Blank, daughter of educators, who was with the children:

"… We were lying near the shed, which was burning in full, and we were hot. Was rattling around, everyone was shouting. The soldiers fired. From time to time one of the soldiers grabbed the boy or girl and fled, firing on the move. I raised her head and watched as he gave the child to another soldier, and he went back and firing back on all fours …

Sometimes, when the soldiers fell, and then the other would pick up the child and ran …

We are getting smaller, and suddenly I was left alone. I thought that I was thrown, but then someone grabbed me by the strong hand. I cried, frightened, and then recognized him. He was one of those men who always ran away and came back crawling. He grabbed my hand and said his name is Sergeant, and that if we want to have time to school tomorrow, you’ll have to run a little bit …

He was running, wagging back and forth, clutching me to her with one hand. With the other hand he fired a machine gun, a little turning back. Sometimes sergeant strange shudder all over and coughing, but still ran forward …

We had very little to stone when he jerked again very, muffled cough and went down on one knee …

His hand gripped me very much, I was hurt. But he got up again and said to me, stepping on a hedgehog, ran slowly forward. I looked at his face, it becomes white and white and her lips too, and out of his mouth was bleeding …

And he still ran forward … I thought then that his hands me is God …

Over the stones, we just dropped and rolled. I grabbed my mother. I really cried and could not calm down. The sergeant was coughing all the time, then took off his vest and gave it to us, he was soaked with blood, and he rolled over to the rocks and crawled back to the barn. There was in full swing shooting, but shot only now there. Mom shouted to him that he did not go there, because he’s hurt, and he said that cigarettes are there on the table forgot …

I saw how he touched her neck soldier lying on the ground, then took off his flak jacket, helmet, and took his gun. And he began to shoot. My mother and I have to calm the children, they were all crying, and then ran up to us soldiers in black uniforms.

Our. Some ran, firing in the direction where our barn burned and someone fired, and some have stayed with us. In the flak jacket sergeant they showed me six dents from bullets that kept the vest and a small hole where it is not kept …

We then flew by helicopter, and my mother told me that the sergeant’s name is Daniel, and that he would come to my school on September 1 with flowers … "

Of the twenty-seven men in the platoon left four. Twenty-three soldiers were killed while saving the lives of children. For the feat Danil Blarneysky was promoted to the rank of Hero of Russia, but did not get it. Due to injuries sustained during a battle in the village of Bamut, in the late spring of 1995, Daniel Blarneysky from the ranks of the reserve armed forces with the rank of sergeant.

For the heroism shown by the performance of military duty during an operation in Bamut, by decree of the President of the Russian Federation on 26 March 1995 Blarneysky Kemalovich Daniel was awarded the Order of Courage.

All the fighters were awarded. Almost all — posthumously. Private Chekletsov, which Blarneysky ruled out by bullets, died of his wounds in hospital two days later.

Sergeant, and now lives with us. Inconspicuous man, an ordinary citizen of the country.
