Dubai: An Indian expat who suffered 90 per cent burns while trying to save his wife from an apartment fire in Umm Al Quwain on February 10 has succumbed to his injuries in hospital.
Anil Ninan, 32, from Kerala, was trying to save his wife Neenu from the blaze. She remains in hospital. The couple have a four-year-old son.
Gulf News reported at the time that five people were injured in the blaze, three of whom were critical and two moderate.
Initially the injured were taken to Shaikh Khalifa and Umm Al Quwain hospitals but it is understood Ninan was transferred to a specialist burns unit at Mafraq hospital in Abu Dhabi for critical care, which is where he died on Sunday.
Facebook posts on several church groups in the northern emirates confirmed the news of Ninan’s passing.
Prasad K John posted on Sharjah Marthoma Parish’s facebook page, “With very deep sorrow to inform that Ras Al Khaimah Mar Thoma Church member who was admitted in Abu Dhabi Mafraq hospital, Mr. Anil Ninan is taken to heavenly abode. Kindly uphold his family members in your prayer.”
Bincy Thomas added, “Lost our dear brother Anil Ninan today. Can’t believe you are gone my dear. Can’t express our pain and grief. Your beautiful smile will remain in our hearts forever.”
