Hossein Koshkoye Delshad takes a deep breath before his sentences and exhales slowly as he speaks.

The 52-year-old is recovering in hospital after an apartment fire that killed his wife and eight-year-old son.

Delshad was left with serious burns on his arms, shoulders and head after Monday’s fire. His older son, Soheil, escaped safely.

Delshad invited a CBC reporter into his hospital room to tell his story, hoping to send a message to other families.

“Maybe, in the future, we can prevent this kind of tragedy,” Delshad said.
