TruLittle Inspirational Heroes 2015 – Tobi Lekuti -Adesemowo
It was in year 10 when he was involved in a fire incident which made the news in Milton Keynes in 2015. He was getting ready for school when he was caught in a fire that was sparked by an explosion from his helicopter toy (drone) that he was charging in his room. Tobi was caught in the fire with his little sister who was asleep while their mum was away to drop another sibling in school which was only a short distance away. In the midst of the chaotic and dangerous situation, he remained courageous and calm; he managed to carry his little sister safely out of the house and they remained with a neighbour till the fire men quenched the fire. Unfortunately, he lost his home and sustained a minor fire injury on his face as a result of the explosion. However, despite the challenging situations that he faced on a daily basis especially around living in a temporary accommodation, he remains focused achieving excellent school results and made a quick recovery from the injury.
