Romy (15) and Sammy (16) save sleeping people from burning home

with flowers and other presents
When the two went home at night, they saw smoke coming from a house. “We stopped right away and called the neighbour who was still awake, after which we saved the people who were still sleeping out of the house.”
Escaped through a ladder
The fire quickly spread everywhere. “Because the house was already full of smoke, the residents could not go outside through the front door or back door, so we took them out through the windows with a ladder.”
Sammy’s mother [Miranda] heard fire trucks driving past. “I phoned where she was and fortunately she answered quickly. She said she was at a fire and was inside a police car. I was shocked, fortunately she quickly told me everything was okay.”
She is really proud of the two girls, she says to Omroep West regional broadcaster.
Meanwhile, British Conservative politician Lord Tebbit wants to ban women from becoming firefighters. And according to French extreme right politician Marine Le Pen, the ‘illegal’ refugee Mamoudou Gassama from warn-torn Mali who saved a little toddler’s life in Paris should never have been in France at all.
