Samira Lamrani said she saw a woman try 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.

The windows were slightly ajar, a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby. Somebody did, a gentleman ran forward and managed to grab the baby. I could see people from all angles, banging and screaming for help.


Us members of the public were reassuring them, telling them we’ve done what we can and that we’ve phoned 999, but obviously the look on their face was death.


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. 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.

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,” reports The Telegraph.

Till now, 17 people have been confirmed dead, however, the death toll could rise to 100. British Prime Minister, Theresa May has ordered an inquiry into the matter.
