Grenfell victim ended call to spare mum her screams

Trapped: Gloria Trevisan PICTURE: PA

A TERRIFIED woman trapped in the Grenfell Tower fire did not want her mother to hear her screaming in their final phone call, an inquiry heard.

Emanuela Disaro received a series of calls from her daughter, Gloria Trevisan, 26, who was on the top floor of the block in Kensington, west London, with her boyfriend Marco Gottardi, 27.

Ms Trevisan, an architect, went through ‘panic, terror, concern, awareness and then resignation’ as she realised fire crews had ‘stopped trying to go up’, her mother said. Her daughter described fire in the sitting room and said she had trouble breathing.

‘Gloria said she was cutting off the phone because she didn’t want me to hear anything and said goodbye to us,’ her mother said. ‘She didn’t want me to hear her scream.’

Gloria and Marco, who came to England from Italy in March 2017, were among 72 people who died as a result of the fire on June 14 last year.
