The Grenfell Tower tragedy in London has taken lives of atleast 79 people and the search missions are still going on. However, a family of five persons who were presumed dead during the tragic accident have been found unharmed and safe.
According to a report the Daily Mail, the Khudair family comprising five family members lived in the tower block. Their English teacher Catherine Lindsay was the first person to report them missing.
The family which was originally from Syria settled in the Grenfell Tower after they escaped the war torn Syria. After they were found out, they felt that the community has been very nice and warm to them.
The tragic incident took lives of many people and the Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said:
“Sadly, as of this morning, I am afraid to say there are now 79 people who we believe are now dead or missing and we have to presume they are dead.”
“We must also prepare people for the terrible reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire,” he added.
Stuart Cundy also said that the condition of the block was indescribable and it will take several weeks to bring under control.
The firefighters, on the other hand worked very hard to save as many lives as possible. Most of them were even left emotionally scarred after the incident.
Some of them even apologized to the victims because they could not work hard enough to save them. One firefighter even wrote a heartbreaking message on a bouquet of flower which was placed near the Kensington tower block.
The message read, We’ve never worked harder. We gave everything. Sorry it wasn’t enough.”
It was signed off as “firefighters x.”
