On June 14, 2017, just before 1 a.m., The Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, London England, caught fire. As many as 600 people were trapped in 120 apartments when the blaze raged through the apartment complex.
A team of 250 firefighters from about 40 fire engines did their best to control the blaze and save as many lives as possible, but the fire grew rapidly and the extreme heat kept Firefighters from entering the building.
First responders arrived within six minutes of the alarm sounding and stayed throughout the night and into the morning battling a blaze that has so far claimed the lives of 30 people.
One of the lucky survivors was a four-year-old girl whose desperate mother dropped her 50ft into the waiting arms of a stranger below.
