Sahar Faris was part of the medical staff working with the fire brigade. She went to the scene of a fire in Beirut to save lives and provide immediate assistance. But she lost their life in the blast. Following the horrific crash in Beirut, the news of Sahar's death and his photos were widely shared on social media.
The story of Sahar has broken the hearts of people not only in Beirut but also in the rest of the world. Sahar was only 27 years old, and were engaged and soon to be married. "She got there and she sent me a video from there," said Gilbert Curran, Sahar's fiance. When Sehar sent the video to his finace, he looked it up on Google Maps and called Sehar's caretaker to ask her to leave. This video was the last video taken by her in Sahar's life.
"I called her to see what was going on," said Gilbert, Sahar's fiance. I told her to run if something was going on there. She looked at me. I told him again if anything went wrong. She started running. She was running and I was screaming, run, run, and run. Talking about the painful call, Gilbert Curran said: "I don't remember the exact duration but the first explosion occurred 9 or 10 seconds later and the phone went off.
Sahar was preparing for her wedding when her engagement ring was found on her body. Her fiance Gilbert Curran wears the ring around her neck in a chain. "She was to be married to him in a white wedding dress, but I buried her in a white coffin," says Gilbert.
Talking about the future, Gilbert says, "Who can replace it?" "My heart and mind are numb and I can't feel anything," he added. Recalling his fiance Sehar Faris, he says, 'How can you see a rose-like girl who was as strong as a hundred men, how could she die like this? I want someone to explain this to me.
Last Tuesday's blast injured more than 4,000 people and killed more than 200. The Lebanese government announced its resignation yesterday after a series of public outrage over the government's incompetence since the August 4 bombings in the Lebanese capital, Beirut.
