Another most painful and sorrow situation for Siberia, Russia. An entire class of schoolchildren apparently died painfully in the fire at a Winter Cherry mall in Siberia, Russia.out of which few had the last chance to make desperate phone calls to their parents.
They were about at least 64 people, many believed to be children, perished in the Siberian city of Kemerovo as of a natural force of fire swept through a crowded shopping center where fire exits had been blocked, officials said this Monday.
An entire class of schoolchildren apparently died in the fire, some having had the chance to make desperate, futile phone calls to their parents or relatives before completely succumbing to the smoke and flames.
Russian social networks were flooded and speeded with grief, and a measure of anger over the response. The disastrous blaze joins a long list of many accidents, fires and sinking’s in Russia marked by apparent negligence beforehand and inept or insufficient response by emergency service provider.
According to the few social networking sites many last updates by children had been found on their wall for public at large out if which few we tried bringing and covering for the article from many different sources. “We are burning, perhaps this is goodbye,” a 13-year-old named Maria posted on her social media account, according to the Rossiya-24 television channel. Hers was one of about 30 goodbyes posted by children who would not log into their accounts anymore this were really something most disgusting and heart sinking post ever.
“As such no accurate lists or data had been generated,” the television reporter said, “but the parents are still holding on to the hope that the names of their children will be moved from the list of the dead to those missing.”
Though they were holding the last ray of hope but the truth was something much bitter which knowingly or unknowingly had been known by everyone that they will no longer will able to listen the voice and laughs of their dearest one.
The fire accident took place a day earlier that is it had been broke out on Sunday afternoon, on the first day of a week-long school break. A class from a school in the small town of Treschevsky had come to Kemerovo to see a movie at the Winter Cherry mall, they had a complete plan to start their week with full joy and happiness, every child was thinking to eat ice cream and jump on a trampoline. Bust something worst had been taken place which was beyond the control and imagination for anyone On Monday, parents of the students visited hospitals in hope of finding their children alive. The director of the school, PavelOrynsky, broke down into tears while describing his loving and dearest students on camera.
During this incidents a public at a large had shared their sorrows in many different types some who had witnessed the accident had elobrated the complete scene where as few had share the last words of thir kids for them. A woman named Yevgenia told the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that her niece Vika called her at 4:11, right after the fire broke out, from the movie theater where so many of the children from Treschevsky found themselves trapped.
“She told me that everything was on fire, that all the doors were blocked,” Yevgenia said, struggling to overcome her tears. Vika told Yevgenia over the phone that she couldn’t breathe. “I told her: Vika, take off all your clothes, take them to your nose and breathe through them.”
“Please tell mom that I loved her,” Vika replied, “please tell everyone that I loved them.”
That was the last Yevgenia heard from her niece.
On the other side of the Russian media, anger toward the emergency services for their handling of the disaster found a platform. An interview with Alexander Lillevyali published by Meduza, an independent outlet, recounted a father’s attempts to save his daughters from the burning theater while first responders geared up and struggled to commit to a single course of action.
“They took three minutes – three (expletive) minutes! — to put on their masks,” Lillevyali said, also with tears in his eyes. The fire fighters initially followed him to the staircase leading to the theater, but they were redirected by a man who told them of another fire. He then begged them to give him a mask so he could return to the theater and save the girls himself. The situation was not only tough but equally was pathetic too.
They were angry on regulations and this anger was easily visible by every one when he was again and again shouting that My girls were left to burn because of the goddamn regulations.

About 40 people were treated at the site during the accident, and at least 10 others were hospitalized, according to Russia’s Ministry of Health. Emergency services officially declared that 64 is the final death toll, but local media reported something contra that dozens of people could be missing. Some bodies will require genetic testing to identify, officials said.
Kemerovo is nearly 2,000 miles east of Moscow. Every social networking sites were filled with the words like rip! As well many people on social media, friends and family shared photos of children believed to have been at the mall when the fire broke out. Other videos showed men attempting to break through a locked door in a stairwell to escape encroaching flames.
One of the hospitalized victims was an 11-year-old boy who jumped out of a fourth-floor window to escape the blaze. And because of which he was described by authorities on Monday as being in serious condition and emotionally traumatized.
“He lost his parents and younger sister in this tragedy,” and remain all alone no one to look behind for him. Health Minister VeronikaSkvortsova said, adding that he suffered several broken bones and is on a respirator.
A news article from Kommersant newspaper reported that 288 firefighters arrived with 62 firetrucks to battle the blaze, which took 19 hours to extinguish and covered an area of 1,500 square meters (16,000 square feet). The roof over the burned area collapsed, and at least 59 people – 41 of them children – were reported missing by the RBC news outlet.
The most shameful thing about the whole incident is that the cause of the fire has yet to be determined by authorities, but the blaze underscored an appalling record of fire safety in Russia in recent years.
Four people were detained for questioning as they were under the suspicion, including a tenant from the area in the shopping center where the fire is believed to have begun, as well as the head of the mall’s management company.
Apart from the whole incident most illogical theories were kept in front by sir Chernov said the working theory behind the fire’s because is that a child may have lit a foam ball in the play area with a cigarette lighter. Other theories put forward in the Russian press suggested that faulty electrical wiring may have ignited the blaze. There were reports that the building’s fire alarms did not sound, leaving those in the movie theater initially unaware of the situation.
No matter how fire had taken place and who was responsible behind that but the only things which matters that many innocents had lost their lives.
