The attached video is simply heartbreaking.
It was taken just a few months ago at the Bar Mitzvah of Avraham Azan, who miraculously survived the horrible tragedy in Flatbush early Monday morning.
Avraham is seen singing a beautiful song in his magnificent voice for his mother, who is standing next to him.
The rest of his family eventually holds hands during the end of the song.
As YWN had reported, Avraham was sleeping on the first floor of the home when the fire broke out. A smoke alarm woke him up, and he and his cousin were able to escape unharmed.
Tragically, his mother and three siblings were R”L killed in the blaze: Mrs. Aliza Azan A”H (39) – the mother of Moshe Azan Z”L (11), Yitzchak Azan Z”L (7), Henrietta Azan A”H (3).
His father, Yosef, courageously saved the lives of two other children – who are listed in critical condition. he attempted once more to enter the inferno to rescue his wife and three children, but was unable to. He too is listed in critical condition, suffering burns and smoke inhalation.
The Levaya will be held at 7:00PM (tonight – Monday) at Beit Knesset “Sheves Achim”, located at Avenue T and East 7th Street in Flatbush.
The Niftarim will be flown on a midnight flight to Eretz Yisroel for Kevura.
Please continue to say Tehillim for Shilat bas Louza Aliza (16) who is critical, Daniel ben Louza Aliza (15) who is critical, and Yosef ben Ahuva Masuda – the father who is critical.
