Hero Beirut nurse shares incredible story

Pamela was initially knocked out by the blast.

But as soon as the nurse regained conciseness, her priority was getting the babies in her ward to safety.

Speaking to Kate Garraway and Adil Ray, she said:  “When the blast happened, everything on the unit was destroyed – incubators, supplies and the ceiling came falling on the ground.

“I was able to move myself out from under the metal – there were metal shelves were on the floor and glass was everywhere.

“Then I went to move the babies – this was the only concern I had.”

As she looked around, she realised her colleagues had been badly injured with their blood dripping on the babies’ incubators.

“My nursing colleagues were all hurt, they were all bleeding,” Pamela recalled.

“They had cuts all over and weren’t responding to me. They looked at me with a blank stare.

“It was very devastating what happened. No one could understand what happened. We did not know what caused the blast.”

Pamela then took three babies from their incubators and tried to get them to safety.

She ran down four flights of stairs in darkness while trying not to slip on the blood.

“I grabbed the babies and went to ER but I could not get help as there was no ER left,” she revealed.

“Everything had been destroyed. We had no electricity there either.”

Pamela then left and started making her way to the next nearby hospital which was 5km away.

The journey took her over an hour.

“It was really terrifying,” Pamela added. “I was walking down the street and people were asking me please how can we help you.

“I told them please just give me some covers, shirts, anything.

“People started taking off their shirts and giving me their shirts to cover the babies – they were only in the diapers as I didn’t have the chance to put anything on them.”

Against all odds, Pamela, got the babies to safety and all three survived.

She revealed: “The mother came to the hospital, she looked at the skeleton of the hospital and fell on the ground. She never thought her babies would survive.

“But they’re doing very well. They’re all. completely healthy, no scratches, nothing. It’s as if nothing happened”
