(MENAFN- IANS) Thiruvananthapuram, June 13 (IANS) Amid the tragic news of 42 Indians, including 24 Keralites, dying in a major blaze in a labour camp in Kuwait, an amazing tale of courage and will for survival has emerged.

Nalinakshan, one of the workers hailing from Kasargod, saved his life by jumping from the third floor into a water tank on the ground floor.

The news has brought major cheer to his family and friends in Kerala.

According to his uncle, Nalinakshan was in the building which went up in flames in the wee hours of Wednesday.

“Seeing the smoke and fire and no way to escape, he jumped from the third floor of the burning building into a water tank on the ground floor. He landed safely in the water tank,” said Nalinakshan's uncle.

“He spoke to me from hospital and said he has suffered a mouth and rib injury. He has to undergo surgery for the broken rib. He was unable to speak much,” added the uncle.
