— Witnesses describe horror of Grenfell Tower building inferno in north Kensington
— “THE mum swayed back. That was the last we saw of her.”

Those are the chilling words of an eyewitness who watched in horror as a woman tossed her baby out the window of the Grenfell Tower inferno on Wednesday morning.

Samira Lamrany, who lives in a building adjacent to the west London flats, told news.com.au the woman leaned out the window and dropped the baby.

“I can say with 110 per cent certainty that I saw a baby being thrown out the window from about the ninth floor at least,” she told news.com.au.

“It just fell straight down and a man came forward to catch it. People were cheering and screaming at the same time.

“The mum swayed back and that was the last we saw of her.”

Samira Lamrany told news.com.au she watched as a baby was dropped from the building.

Ms Lamrany was speaking from the scene, shortly after London police confirmed a “number of fatalities” from the fire that started shortly after 1am local time and engulfed the 27-storey residential tower.

She said it was not clear what happened to the baby or her mother after that.

Grenfell Tower, which has 120 flats, went up in flames on Wednesday morning.

Eliane Lara spoke through tears as she told of witnessing fire take hold of the north Kensington flats. The neighbour said she felt “powerless to help”.

“I heard commotion outside at 1.30am and thought it was someone arguing. It was so intense that I went outside. It was a horrible scene, you could hear people screaming for help. You could hear a woman yelling: ‘Help, I have my kids’.

“Only in movies you see that sort of thing, not something you forget. The screaming of people, it’s distressing to hear people calling out for help and you can’t do anything.

“There was somebody up there with a phone shining the light. You could see the fire spreading across. You really hope they got away but I feel deep down they didn’t.”

Another neighbour, Zorah Jolly, said her husband woke her at 1.15am and “saw a person jump from the building”. Residents said they believed at least two people had jumped.

Others said they saw two children, aged roughly 14, dangling from their window and another couple tying seven bed sheets together in order to climb down.

Police told news.com.au that people remained trapped inside the building as many as seven hours after the fire started.

Pictures and videos from the scene show residents trapped inside their homes waving towels and flashing lights in a desperate bid for help.
