Great video and sad all at the same time. I'm sure there were many hero's of the Grenfell tower fire like this gentleman who are probably unknown except to those they rescued.

Tragic events like this seem to bring out the best in most people like this gentleman who was selfless. Here's to Luca Branislav.

Quote:
Survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire are to be rehomed in a luxury housing development in the heart of Kensington, the government has said.
Sixty-eight one and two-bedroom flats have been acquired at the Kensington Row development, it added.
