Heroic graduate carried disabled mother out of Grenfell Tower from the top floor

An heroic son carried his disabled mother out of the Grenfell Tower fire, battling his way from the top of the block to the bottom to save their lives.

Shekeb Neda, 24, reportedly carried 55-year-old mother Flora on his back down the staircase in the blazing building.

The graduate’s uncle Aref, 54, told The Sun how Mrs Neda, who suffers from a muscle disease, collapsed due to the smoke coming into their flat.

He said: “Shekeb needed to get her out quickly. He took her arms, put them around his neck and carried her over his back down all 24 floors.”

Fahim Muzhary, 62, whose son is a friend of Shekeb, told The Sun: “In the chaos, all the screaming and shouting, he picked up his mother and carried her down from the very top floor.

“He sprinted with her down the stairs the whole way. I just don’t know how he did it.”

His father, Mohammed ‘Saber’ Neda, stayed in the flat and is still missing.
