Despite his injuries, Lukasz kept fighting until others joined in — forcing Khan out onto the bridge in central London where he was shot dead by cops.
His heroics earned him The Royal Humane Society’s Stanhope Gold Medal — its top award.
Announcing the award Andrew Chapman, Secretary of the society said: “Lukasz was a true hero.
