Grenfell Tower Fire Victims Recount Horrors
It was a night they’ll never forget. When London’s Grenfell Tower burned last June, it left dozens dead and a city in shock. The event is etched indelibly in the minds of its survivors: the rapid escalation — flames licking their way up the combustible sides of the high-rise — and horrifying consequences, including residents dying in their apartments or leaping from windows rather than facing the flames. And while many made harrowing escapes, firefighters who risked everything to aid them continue to wonder if they rescued everyone who had a chance.
