The father woke up his children and wife and gathered everyone in the bedroom at the back of their second-story unit. He thought they could all jump from the window to a neighbour's trampoline below.

"It would've been so easy," he said.

"Unfortunately, my older son jumped, but my wife didn't. My younger son didn't."

Delshad had left the bedroom to see if the balcony would be another option for the leap.

He tried to get back into the bedroom when he realized his wife and son hadn't jumped, thinking he could persuade them — but he said the fire was too strong and he was forced back onto the balcony.

He leapt from there as firefighters arrived. Paramedics took him to hospital, where he's been ever since.

Delshad is having surgery on Thursday to treat his burns. He's expected to remain in hospital for at least two weeks.

Emergency responders were called to 1755 Riverside Dr. at 10:10 a.m. Monday. The man had been pulled out of the pool and was in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived. Firefighters and paramedics performed aggressive resuscitation on the patient before paramedics took him to hospital in critical condition. Police said the incident was recorded on video surveillance and is not considered suspicious.

His real story has been buried long ago under thick layers of improvised memories that grew more detailed by the years A few days after Marjorie disappeared, a taxi driver in Thomas, West Virginia, told police that late at night on Mother’s Day He and his wife had lost their only daughter that winter.

He is pictured with his wife , Denise. Husband and wife Dennis and Lorraine Carver, who also survived the Las Vegas massacre, died after their car crashed near Jamie Foxx to play Spawn five years after he begged comicbook creator Todd McFarlane to cast him The comic tells the story of Al Simmons.

His son, Delshad said, was simply "a good boy."

"He would pretend he is rough, but he wasn't," the father said. "I guess that every eight-year-old is like that."

Delshad said he doesn't remember hearing alarms the night of the fire.

The North Vancouver Fire Department is still investigating to find the cause. Officials are also looking into whether or not the building was equipped with working alarms and sprinklers.

Regardless of what they find, Delshad said he wants other families to learn from his loss.

"I would like everybody to know, these apartments, especially if they are wooden and old, they can be very dangerous," he said.

"It doesn't matter how careful or careless you are. What happened on June 10, I believe that proved it."
