'I Don't Want To Die" Mum Of Italian Graduate, 26, Killed In Grenfell Fire Reveals Daughter's Last Words As Blaze Engulfed Tower




A heartbroken mother painfully recalls the last conversation she had with her daughter moments before she died in the Grenfell fire on June 14, 2017.

26-year-old Gloria Trevisan lived on the 23rd floor of Grenfell Tower, north Kensington, with her fiance Marco Gottardi. They moved to London three months before the fire to look for work. As fire engulfed the building on that fateful day in June and she saw there was no means of escape, Gloria and Marco, both architecture graduates, called their families to say their goodbyes.


Gloria used her last breaths to tell her mum how much she loved her. As smoke filled her apartment, the architecture graduate tragically apologized to her mum, distraught they will not be able to embrace ever again.


Ms Trevisan said, according to La Repubblica: "I am so sorry I can never hug you again. I had my whole life ahead of me. It's not fair. I don't want to die. I wanted to help you, to thank you for all you did for me. I am about to go to heaven, I will help you from there."


Her mum Emanuela Disaro told Channel 4 News, she felt helpless listening to her daughter's harrowing cries on the phone.

"How do you help that person, with words? You just can't believe what's happening, I couldn't believe what she was telling me," she told the broadcaster.


As Gloria spoke with her mother, her partner Marco, courageously attempted to play down his fears to his own parents. But when they saw the flames raging up the stairs, they eventually told their desperate families. Their phone conversation was cut short, as the fire ripped through the tower block.



Gloria was tragically identified by her dental records and her cause of death was ruled as "consistent with the effects of fire" at a short inquest hearing in July.
