Woman dies under collapsed ceiling moments after saving five children from burning house in Russia

A mother-of-five tragically died moments after saving her children from a horrific house fire in Russia. 

Gulnara Kostelnyuk, 31, was killed in the blaze when the burning ceiling collapsed on top of her.

Moments before her death the woman managed to evacuate her children, aged under 14, from the burning property and save their lives.

The fire started late at night on Wednesday when the family were sleeping in the city of Yakutsk, far east Russia.

Firefighters say the fire started in the kitchen from a heating stove and quickly tore through the wooden house blocking the exit.

The property was engulfed in flames and filled with thick smoke when Gulnara’s older son, 14, was awakened by thirst and alarmed his mother, according to reports.

After realising they were trapped in a burning room, Gulnara rushed to a window and broke the glass.

The man, devastated by his wife’s death, said to local media: ‘My wife had been taking care of our children. I don’t know how we will handle it without her.’

The victim’s older sister Anastasia told: ‘My mother called me about 4am. She told me that Gulnara was gone.

‘We told the younger kids that she is in a hospital. We do not want to traumatise them.

‘The older boy is still in a state of shock. His mother died in front of him. He does not speak and does everything automatically.

‘Next week he goes to a psychologist.’

The mourning relatives say Gulnara will be buried tomorrow.
