Mr Salem immediately rushed towards the smoke, scaling the building, and jumping to the roofs to reach the family. He ended up with bruises, smoke inhalation, and a broken nose. The family and Mr. Salem was brought to BDF hospital after the incident. Mr Salem later stated that his injuries were nothing compared to the lives that could have been lost.

He has been hailed a hero by the community and has been honored by the Ministry of Interior as well as the Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company President, Dr. Abdelrahman Jawhari.
