Maryam Elisha, an ex-Nigerian beauty queen and designer escaped being burnt alive, as her G-wagon went up in flames on the Eko Bridge in Lagos.
Maryam was saved by passers-by who got her out of the burning car, as she tried stopping the car whose brake failed at that moment, with the car doors jammed as if it was locked from outside.
The fire was first noticed by other road users, who called her attention to it just as she climbed the bridge. Miss Elisha, who confirmed this incidence on the phone, said that she tried to stop the car immediately, but the brakes failed.
“When the car eventually started to slow down, I put it on park and tried to open the door, which wouldn’t open until people came to my aid and helped me out before the fire spread everywhere,” she said.
