Dad's Desperate Bid To Save Girl In Farm Fire

Post by Guest on Sat Oct 01, 2011 12:05 pm

A child has been killed despite her father's desperate efforts to save the youngster from a burning van, it has emerged.

Fire crews spent several hours tackling the blaze

The man managed to rescue his one-year-old daughter from the blazing vehicle at a farm in West Yorkshire.

But he was not able to save her sibling, believed to be a two-year-old girl, Sky sources say.

Emergency services were called to the fire at Hessle Farm, in Wragby, Wakefield, at about 5.30pm on Friday and they found a van and two barns ablaze.

A 37-year-old man and a one-year-old girl were then taken to Pinderfields hospital, in Wakefield, where they were treated for burns.

Their injuries are said to be not life-threatening.

The second child was later found dead in the van.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Martyn Redfearn confirmed the father rescued the one-year-old from the vehicle and tried to rescue the other child.

Mr Redfearn said: "Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the child.

"The firefighters worked very hard and were very moved dealing with this scene, as we always are dealing with tragedies like this."

Roads around the isolated farm were cordoned off as 10 fire engines tackled the blaze, which is not being treated as suspicious.

Mr Redfearn said the fire was now "substantially" out but firefighters remained on the scene.

Large hosepipes could be seen running along the main road as firefighters used water from pipes in the village of Brackenhill, around one mile away, to pump to the property

How would you ever come to terms with this? What a terrible thing.

Having read a bit more, the man was her stepfather, not her father, all the more courageous!

Girl, 2, killed in stables fire tragedy in West Yorkshire

Post by Guest on Sat Oct 01, 2011 7:19 pm

A two-year old girl who died in a barn fire at Hessle Farm, Wragby, near Wakefield, West Yorkshire has been named as Isobel June Dobson.



The girl and her one-year-old step sister were visiting the farm with their family to tend a horse when a barn caught light.

As a second barn went up in flames, the fire quickly spread to a nearby van in which the toddler and her sister were sitting.

Isobel’s stepfather desperately tried to rescue her but the 37-year-old, and the child’s 22-year-old mother, were only able to reach the one-year-old before being beaten back by flames. As firefighters arrived, eyewitnesses described a woman screaming that there was a child in the van.

The stepfather and younger child, who have not been named, were injured and treated overnight at Pinderfields hospital but discharged on Saturday.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Martyn Redfearn, of West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the child. The firefighters worked very hard and were very moved dealing with this scene, as we always are dealing with tragedies like this.”

'Stepdad Arrested' After Girl Dies In Fire

4:24pm UK, Sunday October 02, 2011

A 37-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a fire at a farm that claimed the life of two-year-old Isobel Dobson.


Isobel's body was found on Friday night by West Yorkshire firefighters

It is believed the man being held by police is the girl's stepfather, who had tried in vain to rescue her.

West Yorkshire Police said the blaze was now being treated as suspicious and inquiries were ongoing to determine the cause.

Isobel died on Friday evening after she became trapped in a burning van at Hessle Farm in Wragby, near Wakefield.

She was in the vehicle with her one-year-old stepsister when the fire broke out.

Her mother and stepfather rescued the younger child, but were unable to get to Isobel as they were beaten back by flames, police said.



Ten fire engines were sent to the farm at the height of the blaze


The man and surviving child received treatment for burns at Pinderfields hospital in Wakefield and were later discharged.

Ten fire engines were sent to the farm at the height of the blaze.

A joint investigation was being carried out by West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Yes, they seem to agree he saved the other child and tried to save the one that died, so something must be up!

Whatever the true circumstances an innocent two year old is dead and nothing will bring her back. How the hell does anyone responsible live with that? Evil or Very Mad
