London fire: Baby thrown down ten floors caught by man on ground

15 Juin, 2017, 03:24 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Children were among those begging to be saved as families tried to escape the engulfed 24-storey block of flats in Ladbroke Grove, West London.

Residents who escaped complained there had been no fire alarm, with many relying on neighbours to wake them as the blaze spread, and said official advice in the event of a fire had been to stay inside.

Mr Cundy added: "Whilst we may have accessed every floor that is not the same as a full search of the whole building, and as I said while we now sadly have 12 fatalities, I do believe that figure will rise and sadly I don't anticipate that there will be further survivors". The London Fire Brigade said it rescued 65 people.

Shocking video shows a man helplessly looking from his window as the fire rages on.

One side of the building appeared to be in flames, and 45 fire engines and 200 firefighters were called to the scene.

"We could do nothing and we could see the stuff on the side was falling off, collapsing". The BBC reported that a political deal between the government of Prime Minister Theresa May and a small Northern Irish party could be delayed because of the aftermath of the fire. "But there are 4,000 older tower blocks in the United Kingdom that don't have sprinklers", he said. Help! Help!' The fire brigade could only help downstairs.

Around 50 people have been taken to five hospitals in the capital.

The gunman responsible for the GOP congressional baseball practice shooting has died, President Donald Trump said Wednesday. OH congressman Brad Wenstrup, who served in Iraq as a combat surgeon from 2005-06, provided medical care at the scene.

David Sibert, Fire Brigade Union fire safety expert, said: "What's happened in this fire today is like nothing that anyone in this country has seen ever". There were also reports saying that there are still tenants trapped in the burning building. "We will cooperate with the relevant authorities and emergency services and fully support their enquiries into the causes of this fire at the appropriate time", the company said in a statement. Witnesses present at spot saw people jumping from the upper floors. Mayor Sadiq Khan is hopeful that the still unaccounted for residents have found safe refuge.

They believe that in 2013, a major fire disaster almost took place because of the building's faulty wiring. More than 250 firefighters attended to the building, which Kassemdjian said lacked an integrated fire-alarm system.

"KCTMO narrowly averted a major fire disaster at Grenfell Tower" at the time, the group argued.

"Crews wearing breathing apparatus and extended duration breathing apparatus have been working in extremely challenging and hard conditions to rescue people and bring this major fire under control", Cotton said. "This is a large and very serious incident".

Ambulances and fire trucks filled the streets around the building, which is located in a diverse, working class area of London.

It can be accessed by the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines on the London Underground. "This was just done to tart it up and match the nearby building".

It is also close to Westfield Shopping Centre and near to the affluent area of Notting Hill.
