He said: “The pain had just been getting worse. Five members of family were lost and we had no idea where they were.”When I found out they were missing I wasn’t 100 per cent sure what to think at the time, I was very confused.”My uncle said ‘I’m going, forgive me if I’ve been offensive to anyone’.”He was on the phone to some relatives for three hours – the blaze was still going down and firefighters and fire crew were struggling to save as many people as they can but it’s beyond their control.”Within 15 minutes the fire had spread through the whole building. How can this happen? When the whole building went up I thought ‘it must be a miracle for my family to survive’. My eyes couldn’t believe it had happened.”For me, at that time I said to god ‘please find a way that they can come along with other people trapped in the tower who are safe and well’. That’s all I could think about in that moment.” A young bride-to-be is believed to have died in the Grenfell Tower fire after refusing to leave her elderly parents.Her brothers did the same and are also thought to have perished in the blaze.A relative told The Times Hosna Begum, 22, and her brothers, Hanif, 26, and Hamid, 29, refused to leave their mother, Rabeya, and father, Kamru Miah, who was 82, during the deadly fire.They perished in their flat on the 17th floor as flames raged around them.Their cousin Samir Ahmad, 18, said: “They stayed with their mum and dad. Family was so important to them. They lived together and they died together.”Their dad could barely walk anyway. What were they going to do? Abandon him?” “My auntie spoke to Hanif. He was very calm. He said his time had come, and not to mourn for them, but be happy for them because they would be in a better place.”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.”He said the family made their last phone call at 3.10am.One of the brothers in the family survived because he had recently moved out.
