12-year-old Masoud Nasser Al Mazroui from Al Qusais in Dubai has been honoured by Dubai Police after being hailed a hero for rescuing his three brothers from a developing fire in their home. Firefighters and Police were so impressed by his actions that he was nominated for an award which he received this week.
Masoud discovered the fire which involved a set of curtains and immediately carried his two-year-old brother to safety. He then escorted his other two brothers, aged four and eight from the house before going back to fight the fire with the assistance of the family’s maid. Their actions prevented the blaze from spreading to corridors in the property.
Neighbours called emergency services after seeing the smoke.
