An Emirati mother managed to save her three children before the air conditioning unit in their room exploded on Monday in Khuzam in Ras Al Kaimah.
Sumayya, 30, broke the glass of the window and was able to rescue her children out one after the other before she herself left the room a few moments before the air conditioning unit exploded.
Following a report that a fire broke out in a room of an Emirati’s house, civil defence vehicles and police patrols rushed to the scene of the fire and put it out before it spread to other rooms.
Sumayya had to break the glass of the window after she failed to locate the room key when smoke started coming out of the air conditioning unit.
“My little children woke me up after they saw smoke spreading in the room where I was asleep with them. Because I was confused, I could not find the room key and that is why I broke the glass of the window to save my little children aged between two to five. I then jumped behind them and a few moments later, I heard the sound of an explosion inside the room.
Sumayya and her children sustained minor injuries and were admitted to Saqr Government Hospital. Sumayya severely injured her shoulder while getting out of the window.
