In a nutshell
When it comes to tragedies and mass lives are at stake, there is often a fine line between saving yourself and other people. But a man in Bangladesh completely ignored his own safety to save 34 people from the rubble of the collapsed Rana Plaza. With the risk that the building would fall even further, the man went beyond his duty.
Despite earning only $ 2.50 a day, Didar Hossain was willing to put the tough graft in a factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh, to take care of his family. But on April 24, 2013, something happened that he never expected. As he completed his daily tasks, he heard a tremendous bang. With such a loud noise, he and his colleagues were curious to discover what it was.
Through the factory window Hossain could only see a thick layer of dust and black smoke. Seconds later, he realized that the factory across the street had completely collapsed. Hundreds of innocent lives had been lost and a number of people were trapped helplessly under the weight of the Rana Plaza building. Hossain told the BBC at the same time ̵
"All I could see out the window was this dust-like fog – it was really dark and smoky – we yelled and tried to get out, but the security guard stopped us and said," No. "You can not go outside." But I pushed past him and went out. "
After he had forced his way out of his factory, he had to force himself into the other factory. As he entered, he immediately discovered a deceased body beheaded with his head. But he did not allow that, and he plowed through the rubble to bring 34 people to safety. On the second day, a woman got stuck in her mind with her hand …
"I spent five hours with her, 18-22 meters inside On the third floor, she cried a lot, and when I came to her, she said, "Please, brother, do not leave me, get me out – even if you have to cut my hand off."
So Hossain quickly looked for them Help from a doctor outside, who immediately refused to enter the building, even though the doctor gave him the anesthetic and the knife and told him to do it instead Hossain reluctantly struggled to cut off the woman's hand for a while, but eventually he was able to free them from the rubble.
From the moment the factory collapsed until the end of the rescue operation, Didar Hossain risked his life to save the injured – "I went down on Wednesday 9:00 am; not ready by Friday at 13:00 clock. I worked all the time. "After the incident, Hossain explained that he had difficulty sleeping and was constantly crying or seeing these bodies without a head, and in the end he acted like a true hero.
