A young Muslim from Egypt was able to save the lives of five children who were trapped inside the burning Abu Sefein church in the city of Giza, which is situated on the outskirts of Cairo.

Muhammad Yahya resides in the building directly adjacent to the church. According to media, he went to the building because he heard screaming coming from within. [Citation needed]

“I quickly entered the church to save people … and I encountered a lot of fire and smoke,” he said.

During the rescue, Yahya soaked his T-shirt in water and then placed it over his nose to protect himself from the water. This was done to shield him from the vapours, which were making it difficult for him to breathe and were also blocking his vision.

The tremendous amount of water that was used to put out the fire caused the young guy to slip and fall while he was trying to carry an elderly man on his back. As a result, the young man sustained injuries. They were both knocked to the floor, and Yahya suffered a broken leg.

In the hospital, he has had visits from priests who wanted to thank him for his bravery and check on how his health is doing at the same time.
