Lucas reportedly saw his mother and niece standing in front of a burning house, but did not see their daughters.
“I just knew I had to take my kids out,” Lucas said of his 18-month-old twin daughters, Milan-Malaysia, who were still there. “That’s what came to my mind.”
He then fell back into the burning building to save the girls.
The brave father said that he used his memory to navigate the house in Eastpoent.
“You really could not see your hands in front of your face,” he recalled entering the smoking interior. “I really found my babies just because of my memory, just knowing where they are, knowing how to get them just by having the same route.”

“These last few days have been crazy, but I just wanted to thank everyone for their support, be it prayer, money, clothes, anything, I’m really grateful,” Brown said on Facebook on Wednesday. “My children were discharged from the hospital yesterday, and their father was also discharged. We are in the hotel now, we are all just trying to recover. ”
He added that the family needs financial support and resources to help them find a new home.
