GURUGRAM: A 32-year-old interior designer, saved many lives in a highrise tower at Tulip Orange on Sunday night, knocking on doors of flats to alert other residents to a fire that had started in the stairwell a little after 2am. Thanks to her, almost everyone escaped to safety, to the building’s upper floors. But Swati couldn’t. Firefighters found her dead two hours later, next to the gate leading to the 10th floor terrace, five floors above her flat. The gate was locked, trapping Swati in a stairwell filled with thick smoke.
