Meet Dawood, the only Grade 9 survivor of the Peshawar School massacre
The fifteen-year old boy cannot believe his fortune and is still under shock after he had to burry six of his closest friends
Peshawar still stands shocked following the deadly Taliban school attack that killed more than a hundred children and so does Dawood Ibrahim, one of the few students who survived the incident.
Ibrahim, who overslept because his alarm did not work in the morning, is the only Grade 9 student who was not killed during the attack, Pakistan-based daily The Express Tribune reported.
The fifteen-year old boy may be lucky to have escaped a brutal killing, but he is still suffering from shock after he had to burry six of his closest friends.
“Dawood isn’t talking to anyone, he isn't talking at all,” his elder brother Sufyan Ibrahim said.
“He practices judo and is quite a tough child but he is showing no emotion at all right now. He just attended funerals the entire day. No one from his class survived. Every single one of them was killed,” Sufyan added.
“Dawood was lucky. He missed school on that day because we attended a wedding the night before, and he overslept. It was fate,” Sufyan added.
