Grenfell Tower fire MIRACLE: Baby dropped from tenth floor of blazing tower CAUGHT by man

bbc.co.ukMost of the floors in Grenfell Tower consisted of six flats – four with two bedrooms and two one-bedroom. Police believe about 350 people should have been in the tower block on 14 June, each floor having the potential to house at least 10-20 people. Some of those other residents on the 23rd floor bang loudly on Rania’s flat.

 

A baby dropped from a window on Grenfell Tower as fire tore through the building has miraculously escaped serious harm, witnesses say. Another resident, named only as Zara, said a woman was forced to drop her son, aged about five, from a fifth- or sixth-floor window to escape. At least six people have died and 74 people have been taken to hospital after a fire broke out in the 24-story Grenfell Tower in Kensington.

A baby dropped from a window on Grenfell Tower as fire tore through the building has miraculously escaped serious harm, witnesses say.

Eyewitnesses said a man in the crowd ran forward and caught the falling youngster.

How the unidentified woman fared remains unknown.

“The windows were slightly ajar, a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby,” eyewitness Samira Lamrani said.

“Somebody did, a gentleman ran forward and managed to grab the baby.”

Ms Lamrani said she thought the baby had not been hurt by the fall.

Another resident, named only as Zara, said a woman was forced to drop her son, aged about five, from a fifth- or sixth-floor window to escape.

“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,” she told radio station LBC.
