Since news of the Grenfell Tower disaster broke, members of the community have been holding out hope that their friends and loved ones will be miraculously found in hospital. As the days dragged on, this seemed less and less likely.

However, an incredible bit of news has come out as we have learned that a woman who was feared dead has been found in hospital.

Fadumo Ahmed's picture had been spread around, and posted on 'Missing People' walls by her friends. They were desperately trying to find information regarding her whereabouts but sadly heard nothing, reports the Mirror.

The 32-year-old lived on the 19th floor of the building but was rescued by a firefighter and taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. While she was in her flat, she rang her mother to tell her that she couldn't get out, and that this was goodbye.

She's been in hospital since the fire. Luckily, her family knew where she was and have been by her bedside as she recovers. However, her friends were not aware of her rescue and have been continuing to search for her. Her family were also not aware of the appeals being made for Fadumo.

Ms Ahmed's mother told the Mirror: "In her last call to us, she said, 'I can't come down any more. I can't get down. I'm in God's hands now. Pray for me. Goodbye.' We all cried."

She continued: "He [the firefighter] is a hero. He saved her life, it's that simple. Otherwise, she wouldn't have got out.

"We are just so happy she is okay. When we saw how bad the fire was and knew she was inside, it was terrible. We didn't think anyone else could get out of there alive."

A few days ago, Metropolitan police commander Stuart Cundy said: "Sadly, as of this morning, I am afraid to say there are now 79 people who we believe are now dead or missing and we have to presume they are dead."

He added: "We must also prepare people for the terrible reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire."

Millions of pounds have been raised for those affected by the fire, and a nationwide clamp down on the kind of cladding that was used on the outside of the tower. Many panels from different buildings have been sent off for testing to ensure that a disaster of this kind never happens again.
