Rabat – Omar, a Moroccan national living in the Netherlands has been called a “hero” after rescuing victims from an apartment fire in Utrecht, the Netherlands, on Thursday.

The Dutch-based news outlet RTV Utrecht reported today that, before firefighters could respond, the Moroccan national and some of his friends ran into the apartment to save people. “Omar was one of the heroes last night who came to rescue during the fire in a house on the Marshalllaan in Utrecht.”

Three people were injured in the fire. However, the explosion at the apartment could have been worse without the help of Omar.

In his own words, Omar said, “We  brought down a few families, one with a baby and then there was nobody in that appartement.”

Even after firefighters arrived, Omar stayed to help.

“One went upstairs and he was stuck, so I went into the hall to help that agent, but I could not because there was a lot of smoke.”
