An Italian couple feared dead in the Grenfell Tower fire phoned their families to say goodbye as they watched the flames rise towards them, it has emerged.
Gloria Trevisan and Marco Gottardi were in their 23rd-floor flat when they became aware of the blaze, which killed at least 30 and injured many more.
With little chance of escape the 27-year-old architects phoned their parents, who said they told them they could see the flames raging up the stairs.
“I am so sorry I can never hug you again,” Ms Trevisan said, her father Loris told La Repubblica newspaper. “I had my whole life ahead of me. It’s not fair. I don’t want to die. I wanted to help you, to thank you for all you did for me.
“I am about to go to heaven, I will help you from there.”
In the first call, Marco told us not to worry, that everything was under control, that basically we must not worry. He was trying to minimise what happened, probably not to unsettle us.
