Residents of Lusaka’s Kabwata areavon Friday evening saved two kids of unknown age who were trapped in a flat which was on fire.
According to eyewitnesses, the children were left with their teenage aunt as the mother is on the Copperbelt while the father is also out of town. The cause of the fire, which has extensively burnt one flat where the kids where, is yet to be known.
The fire almost spread to other flats but LCC fire trucks quenched the inferno before it spread.
And in a video that has since gone viral on social media, the children were saved through the windows, as they jumped from the third floor of the Kabwata Flats onto mattresses that the onlookers had placed on the ground.
