  • "Super Mom" in NYC pulls children from blaze

    A story from MSNBC this morning.
    You go girl. What a hero.
    LOL I love her son's comment about how "She was never that brave before...she was always worried about boring stuff like nutrition."

    ‘Super Mom’ recovering after rescuing children
    Woman sustained major burns pulling children from blaze in New York

    NEW YORK - A woman was recovering Saturday from skin graft surgery for burns she suffered when she rescued her 4-week-old twin sons and two other children from a fire in their apartment, then went back to save a fifth child.

    Firefighters found Nabila Nazli unconscious from smoke inhalation but still cradling 5-year-old daughter Nimrah to protect her from the flames.

    “She was never really that brave before,” 10-year-old Umar Naseer said about his mother. “Before she was always worried about stuff like nutrition and all this boring stuff. Now she was saving our lives.”

    Nazli, 38, and her daughter were both upgraded from critical to serious condition Saturday at Jacobi Medical Center, said hospital spokesman Michael Heller.

    The blaze started in their second-floor apartment early Thursday, probably ignited by an extension cord, fire investigators said.

    Nazli gathered four of the children in a front bedroom, then dropped the twins one at a time into a blanket held by neighbors who had heard screams.

    Four-year-old Shamail and Umar jumped into the blanket, while Nazli realized that Nimrah was missing and went back to find her.

    Nazli underwent several hours of skin graft surgery on Friday, authorities said.

          Good Job!!

          Wonderful story...after 25 yrs on the dept all too many times there were not so good stories...people react differently in these situations and its unfair to put down those parents that don't do anything. Myself and as all of you are know you could not stand by and do nothing...but one thing is, we are trained, and unfortunately (I say unfortunate in one sense) some peoples fight and flight survival mode is very strong and takes over...they wouldn't dream of leaving their children behind but all too often it happens for the very reason stated above. Again though wonderful!!! story above...thank you for sharing it Regards...Paul

            I thought that was funny about the nutrition comment too. I have to say, it IS brave worrying about nutrition. LOL. I catch so much grief worrying about it myself!

                She is willing to risk the brutal comments, the ridicule, from her children and others so that they grow up with good eating habits. Just an example that she is a good mom all around. God bless her. I hope she, her daughter and the others are recovering well and she receives flowers from around the state/country for her bravery.

                haha Kevin!

                  also the FF's who pulled her out

                  I also meant to say, great job to the FF's who pulled her and the last child, who she was holding, out. I was so blown away by her courage that I forgot to thank the FF's, who show courage every day of the year. What a kick to read that story.
