The Heroic save

The Telegraph quoted Samira Lamrani, a witness, as saying that she had seen a woman trying to save a baby by dropping it from a window “on the ninth or 10th floor” to waiting members of the public below.

“People were starting to appear at the windows, frantically banging and screaming,”

she said.

With the windows vaguely agape, a woman was gesticulating that she was about to throw her baby down and if somebody could catch her 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. Members of the public were reassuring them. We told them we’ve done what we can and that we’ve phoned 999, but obviously the look on their face was death,” 

The Fire

The fire at Grenfell Tower on the Lancaster West Estate in Latimer Road was reported at 01:16 local time. The Metropolitan Police has said that 58 people are currently missing and presumed dead, including 30 confirmed dead. The BBC reports that the final figure could be “around 70”.

Other Incidents

“My daughter’s friend said she observed an adult who made some sort of homemade parachute and tried to lower himself out of the window,”

Lamrani said.

“The more I looked up, floor upon floor. Endless numbers of people. Mainly the kids, because obviously their voices, with their high pitched voices, that will remain with me for a long time. I could hear them screaming for their lives。”

“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.”
