Three siblings choose to stay and die with their aged parents rathar than escape from Grenfell Tower fire (photos)

Three young siblings, bride-to-be Husna Begum, 22, and her brothers; Hanif, 26, and Hamid, 29, chose to stay and die with their parents in the Grenfell Tower fire in London, rather than leave them to die alone on the 17th floor as smoke and flames engulfed the building.

In an emotional conversation hours after the fire started, they all spoke to their relatives on the phone and explained their decision to stay.
They said that there was no way they could leave their 60-year-old mother, Rabeya, and 82-year-old father, Kamru Miah. They urged their relatives not to grieve for them as they were going to a better place.


It's been claimed they had an opportunity'of almost an hour after the fire began to make their way to safety but refused. Their cousin, Samir Ahmad, in an interview said; 
"Their dad could barely walk anyway. What were they going to do? Abandon him? Hats off to them. They didn't show cowardice. They stayed with their mum and dad. Family was so important to them. They lived together and they died together."

    judgement in not attempting to leave the building. it seems that it would be good to have at least 3 fire extinguishers at home.

    Quite a devotion they had, what is troubling is that with the type of fearless devotion of this race, the world will never be rid of terrorism.

    There parents were stupid. For Christ sake the man was 80 and mum 60 they have lived their own lives. Honestly this is crazy. If I were their parents I would tell them to save themselves.A man of 80 couldn't die alone those kids were stupid.

    This doesn't make any sense at all. Two able-bodied young men and a young lady. They could carry their parents to safety. They had an hour after the fire started to do that. They might sustain injuries but they will be alive. SMH.

    I think these children were dumb and stupid. They committed suicide. The possibility was there that one of them could have survived or all could have made it. I will rather do something and get it wrong than to do nothing. This attitude is crazy and should not be shown to our children in Africa. This is one reason a particular religion would always have suicide bombers. It borders on the premium they place on life. They don't have respect for the sanctity of life. Pity

    You're a dumbo! If you tell them to save themselves & they refuse, what would you do? Drag them down? Well if you can drag them down, why didn't you drag yourself down in the first place?

    Did you not see the scale of the inferno.
    Biko tell who the fire extinguisher for help. Obviously they had come to the conclusion that there was no way they could help their parents.
