An 8 year old girl was among those who were killed in the vicious bombing of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester on Monday night.
She was described as a “beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word” by one of her school teachers and was named as one of the 22 victims of the bomb attack.
The little girl “was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly.” The girl was typically a quiet student who had a flair for the creative.
Another victim of the attack was Georgina Callander, who was an 18-year old superfan of Ariana Grande.
The night before the deplorable attack resulted in her death, she tweeted, “So excited to see u tomorrow.” She was described as a “lovely young student” who was well liked by all her classmates.
Callander went out of her way to make the most of any opportunities that were offered to her in school. She was a fun-loving teenager who was fond of band like One Direction.
Lancashire County Council confirmed that Saffie Rose Roussos from Leyland, Lancashire was killed in the attack at the Manchester Arena. The explosion ripped through the mostly teenage crowd as they streamed out of the venue following the end of the pop star’s performance.
“Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word,” Chris Upton, headteacher at Tarleton Community Primary School, said. “She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly. Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair.” “News of Saffie’s death in this appalling attack has come as a tremendous shock to all of us and I would like to send our deepest condolences to all of her family and friends. The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking,” Upton added.
