A young Egyptian Muslim saved five children stuck in a fire that broke out at the Abu Sefein church in the city of Giza.
According to Arab News, the residence of Muhammad Yahya is very close to the church. He went to the building after hearing screams coming from inside.
During the rescue, Yahya covered his nose with his wet shirt to block the fumes that were making it difficult for him to breathe.
“I quickly entered the church to save people … and I encountered a lot of fire and smoke,” he said.
The young man tripped and broke his leg while attempting to carry an elderly man on his back.
The priests from the church came to see him in the hospital to see how he was doing and to express their gratitude for his bravery. BKM/ Expat Media
