London: A quick-thinking man caught a baby thrown from the "ninth or the tenth floor" window of a building by a desperate woman after fire broke out in London. A 24-storey residential tower accidentally caught fire and around 600 people were believed to have been inside Grenfell Tower's 120 flats.
A witness, named Samira Lamrani, reported that she saw a woman who was trying to save a baby by dropping it from a window "on the ninth or 10th floor" to the members who were waiting below.
"People were starting to appear at the windows, screaming and asking for help" she said. The windows were slightly ajar; a woman was gesturing that she was about to voices, with their high pitched voices - that will remain with me for a long time. I could hear them screaming for their lives," she said.
Another resident, 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. "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 reported.
