Saffie's mum's heartbreaking first words as she woke from coma after Manchester attack

Machester bomb blast has come and gone but the trauma is still very much fresh in the lives of those who witnessed it. Saffie's family were not left out, the devastated father of the little girl, Saffie Roussos has revealed his wife’s heartbreaking first words as she awoke from her coma.

"Saffie's gone, isn't she?" The 48 year old mother  asked.

In response, dad Andrew, 43, simply nodded, the Mirror reports.

"That's all that was said really," the grieving father said.

Saffie Roussons was the youngest of the 22 victims killed when a suicide bomber detonated an IED at Ariana Grande's concert.

Before she died, she lay at the scene in her blood calling for her mum. The 48-year-old mum, Lisa Roussons, couldn't be there for her child because she was critically injured in the blast. She was later placed in an induced coma.

Speaking to BBC correspondent, Victoria Derbyshire, the father said today would have be his daughter's ninth  birthday but she is no more. Andrew narrates how he arrived at the scene of the attack and how he was told his wife had been tajen to Salford Royal Hospital.

"I couldn't take it in. I just sat there looking at him. It's just your worst nightmare. I didn't know what to say, I didn't know what to think," he recalled.

Andrew said during the interview that his "stunning" young daughter loved stardom and would have wanted her beautiful face to be remembered by people across the country.

"She was just everything you could wish for in a little girl," he told the programme.
