Woman risks life to pull kids from flames

2008-07-02 00:00

A Pelham woman sobbed with relief yesterday after she pulled four children aged between two and eight years old out of a burning room to safety at Oribi Village. She also assisted a 93-year-old bedridden relative of theirs out of the smoke-filled home.

“I noticed smoke coming from one of the units. I knew that the children were there with an old man, Johannes Ngubane, so I rushed over. The flames were high in the air and I shouted for people to help.”
