Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik

A survivor of the island attack by Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik has revealed how she pulled a bullet out of a foot wound after being shot.

Frida Holm Skoglund, 20, told a court in Oslo that she spent nearly an hour in icy water before being rescued by a boat, reports Sky News.

She said that as the boat headed towards her she thought it was Breivik trying to hunt her down again.

Rescuers later told the student, who also suffered an asthma attack, that the cold water had stemmed blood loss from her wound.

Speaking from the witness box Miss Skoglund said: "We won. He lost. Norwegian youth can swim (again)."

The court also heard from four other survivors of the attack on the island of Utoya, where 69 of Breivik's 77 victims died.

Another female witness, Silja Kristine Uteng, 21, said she took refuge in a forest and then swam to the mainland.

She said it was only after she got out of the water she realised she had been wounded.

The girl revealed she is still recovering from her ordeal in an institution.

Sky's Trygve Sorvaag, at the trial, said: "These young witnesses are clearly nervous.

"It must be difficult recalling the horrors of the island in front of the man who tried to kill them last summer."

Lars Gronnestad, 20, suffered a serious lung wound told the court he smeared soil over his face and body as he hid in woodland from Breivik.

Although he had called the emergency services, he said he was wary of his rescuers at first because Breivik was also dressed as a policeman.

An 18-year-old male student ran for his life after seeing Breivik shoot a girl in the head.

The teen later saw a friend fall to his death as they clung to the side of a cliff to escape Breivik on the cliff top.

The testimony from Marius Hoft, one of the very last to be rescued, reduced some people listening in court to tears.
