Mom throws her son from window to rescue him from fire
“First I threw my little boy down and then I jumped down myself,” said Sevdanur Bayrak, the mother who took the risk to throw her son Oğuz Kaan Bayrak from the window.
She said that she trusted the crowd out on the street.
Adnan Topçu, one of the bystanders, held the two-year–old boy before handing him over to health workers.
An owner of a nearby store, who had rushed to the scene when he heard that a fire broke in the building, said that an elder woman was rescued from the top floor.
The fire started at the ground floor of the four-story building and grew when flames reached the isolation substance on the facade.
Not only Sevdanur Bayrak and her two-year-old son were affected. Mustafa Özkale living in the ground floor and 70-year-old Zahide Gürlevük were also badly affected by the smoke and all four had to be hospitalized.
