An elderly deaf man saved his family by alarming his younger son who later helped other members of the family to escape the fire. The family is under huge debts as their only source of income – a meat shop was razed to the ground in the fire, along with the savings and their identity proves and other documents.
Ten years ago Kala Mia (69) was slapped by a policeman in Bangladesh which took away his hearing ability and was left to struggle in the world. But it was Mia who saw fire flames in the house and alarmed his sons about the possible threat.
