Tragic last phone calls of 23rd floor Grenfell Tower blaze couple

Tragic last phone calls of 23rd floor Grenfell Tower blaze couple

Gottardi's call home was similarly emotional, though his father, Giannino, said his son remained strong until the phone lines finally went out.

Hope is dwindling for two Italians who are missing following this week's Grenfell Tower inferno in London.

Gloria Trevisan and Marco Gottardi, both 27, both architects, were trapped in their 23rd-floor apartment at the Grenfell Tower, which was engulfed in flames, the Telegraph reported.

Firefighters were on Thursday morning continuing their search of the building and had reached all 24 floors, but said it was not safe to go into some parts of the upper floors, where there were still pockets of fire. Gottardi tried to calm both his girlfriend and her parents down, though after an hour their situation had only worsened.

"The firefighters are here, everything is OK", Gottardi said.

It was then that her family, who live near Padua in Italy, turned on the television and actually saw the fire consuming Grenfell Tower. She told her parents she was sorry she could never hug them again, saying she had her whole life ahead of her, that it wasn't fair and that she didn't want to die. By about 4 a.m., smoke poured into their apartment.

In their last moments, the devoted couple told their parents they wanted to say goodbye, with Miss Trevisan telling her mother: 'Thank you for what you have done for me'.

"But in the second call - and I can not get this out of my head- he told me that there was smoke, that a lot of smoke was rising up", Giannino said.

The burning tower block. Her mother reportedly recorded their final conversation as it happened.

Her father told the Italian newspaper Il Mattino di Padova that the couple "wanted to go down but said they could see flames going up the stairs and the smoke was more and more intense", The Sun of the United Kingdom reports. "The lifts are blocked", Mr Gottardi had told his father, Giannino, at around 2am United Kingdom time. Initially he told his family that everything was under control. He did, however, say that when they opened the front door of the apartment, they could see that there was too much smoke and the lifts were apparently blocked. Giannino can't get that call out of his head.

"The communications broke down and from that moment on we no longer had any contact".
