A baby was thrown from the 10th floor by a panicking mother after she saw group of people at the bottom. She signaled for them to catch the toddler after she dropped him from the 10th floor. In a event many are considering to be a miracle, a man actually managed to catch the baby after being dropped from the floor. The members of the public were relieved and in shock in equal measures.
An eye witness described the ordeal to Telegraph:
People were starting to appear at the windows, frantically banging and screaming. The windows were slightly ajar – a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby.
She also told how she saw a man catch the baby:
Somebody did, a gentleman ran forward and managed to grab the baby.
She added: ‘I could see people from all angles, banging and screaming for help.
Another resident, called Zara, said she saw a woman throw her son, who was about five years old, from a fifth or sixth floor window to escape the blaze.
She told LBC: ‘One woman actually threw her son out of the window. I think he’s OK.
‘I think he might have just had some broken bones and bruises.
‘I left my phone at home so I went back to grab it and, by the time I got back, the road was completely blocked off, the fire had dramatically spread.
‘It was like a scene from a Hollywood movie.’
Asked about which floor the boy was thrown from, she said she thought it was the fifth or even the sixth.
‘There was another woman screaming ‘my baby, my baby, I need to get out, I need to save my baby’.
‘But we were just looking up.
‘We couldn’t do anything.
‘There was nothing we could do.’
The horrible inferno left the buildings completely razed and has already resulted in 12 fatalities. We pray for everyone affected by this horrible tragedy.
