The air hostess who ended a fire

Because Mumbai’s very own Wonder Woman, Radhika Ahire, did exactly that when she saw smoke coming out of an apartment on the ninth floor of Gokul Panchwati building in the suburb of Andheri, Mumbai. While the rest of the crowd that had gathered around the building did nothing, Radhika, assisted by her brother Rohit and neighbour, Mahesh Belapurkar dashed to douse the fire (caused by a firecracker) with a crash axe and nine fire extinguishers. She said,

Flight attendants are trained to deal with fire on aeroplanes. And that training came in handy for the 25-Year-Old Ahire, as she successfully stopped the building from catching fire even before the firefighters arrived. She said,

The incident had happened on November 7th, 2018. However, her heroic feat was forgotten until the residents awarded her for her bravery on Republic Day.

Every kid should have a role model in their life who will give them realistic expectations and goals to strive for. Sidhu Humanbade, Jaiswal KP and Radhika Ahire are such examples. So, let’s laud their spirit and pass on their stories to the next generation to help them become better human beings.
