The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

FOUR chil­dren were saved by neigh­bours as they leapt from an up­stairs win­dow to es­cape their blaz­ing home.

A girl of 17 went first and pleaded with neigh­bours to help her younger sib­lings, say­ing: “Tell them to jump.”

The neigh­bours rushed to break the fall of the oth­ers, the youngest aged 10.

A cou­ple named lo­cally as Mo­hammed Awad, 56, and Hasma Awad, 47, were found dead in the house in Withing­ton, Manchester.

The chil­dren were sta­ble in hos­pi­tal yes­ter­day.
