A drunk emerges as unlikely hero in the Grenfell Tower inferno after he randomly hit the fourth floor lift button

A drunk emerged as an unlikely hero in the Grenfell Tower atrocity – when he randomly hit the fourth floor lift button, the sun reports:

The swaying drinker got in the lift around 1am with 13th floor resident Miguel Alves, who was just getting home from work.

Miguel Alves raised the alarm telling as many neighbours as possible to get out

He lurched towards the elevator control panel and happened to hit ‘4’…the level on which the inferno began allegedly from an exploding fridge.

When the doors opened, smoke came billowing in leaving the pair choking for breath.

Quick-thinking Miguel carried on up to his level and woke wife Fatima, daughter Ines, 16, and son Tiago -ordering them to get out.

Tiago Alves was saved when his dad woke him up

Miguel then dashed around the building banging on the doors of as many neighbours as possible.

The dad has told his incredible story of good fortune to friends who have hailed his unselfish actions.

One neighbour said: “If that lift had not opened at the fourth floor many more lives would have been lost”
