Courageous Son Carries His Disabled Mom With No Help Down 24 Flights Of Stairs During London Fire

When Mohamed and his wife Shakila were looking for a place to move, they already knew where they wanted to live. The West London Tower. For them, this was a culmination of many years’ work. Little did they know what would take place on one fateful day. The tower would be engulfed in flames almost entirely. This would leave many people dead, and many more injured.

Shakila’s son, Farhad is now 24-years-old. He’s a graduate of Kingston University. Currently, he is pursuing a career as a mechanical engineer. The brave actions that took him to rescue his mother on that day must be commended. Would you believe that her son carried her down a whopping 24 flights of stairs? The famous fire took place on June 14. This young man fought his way through flames and smoke. He wanted to make sure that his mother’s life was preserved. This is a heart-warming story, so sit back.

“He is a hero. In the chaos, all the screaming and shouting, he picked up his mother and carried her down from the very top floor,” Fahim Muzhary, a friend of the family, told The Sun. He praised Farhad’s heroic actions. “He sprinted with her down the stairs the whole way. I just don’t know how he did it. He must have summoned the strength somehow in the moment. With all the smoke and the flames, it really is unbelievable.”

Shakila suffers from a muscular disorder. This makes her unable to move very well. This also made it impossible to remove herself from the burning building and do it fast. Farhad’s father requested that his son leave him behind. This is something Farhad regrets, he is still missing. His family likes to remain optimistic. They know one day he will return.

Saber is just one of the more than 60 people still missing. After firemen doused the flames, they were nowhere to be seen. His family remains hopeful for his return. Twenty-four people total the victims that are currently receiving treatment. Twelve of them are listed in critical condition. Another 30 people have been confirmed dead.

The Nedas lived on the top floor of the Tower. It housed 120 flats. Nearly 600 people were there on the night of the fire. There’s an organization called Grenfell Action Group. They had warned officials of the potential fire risks, but had been ignored. The problem was the lack of multiple exits and an insufficient evacuation plan. This brought tragic results the night of the fire. The group posted on the day of the catastrophe that “all our warnings fell on deaf ears, and we predicted that a catastrophe like this was inevitable and just a matter of time.”
