20 people were killed and several others were injured yesterday in a fire at a coaching centre in Surat, Gujarat. The coaching centre was located on the third and fourth floors of the Takshashila Complex, and several students were forced to jump off the burning building.

A man named Ketan Jorawadia is being lauded however, for his selfless bravery during the incident. 

According to India Today, he climbed on to the ledge of the building, and helped students get out safely. One of the main dangers of a building fire is suffocation, so Ketan helped some of the students escape out the windows.

According to one Twitter user, Ketan saved at least 2 girls from falling off the building.

The internet hailed his courage and his decision to put himself at risk to save the lives of others.

Investigations are underway about the cause of the fire, and the owner of the coaching centre has been arrested. Further updates are awaited.
