I was afraid that there would be another explosion, so we fled from the restaurant. It was there, the next explosion went of, telling the 61-year-old father to the Daily Mail, after he came home to London.
They were both unconscious, but my son, then, worse than my daughter. A lady said that she would take care of my daughter, so I ran to an ambulance with my son in my arms. I drove towards the hospital with my son. I shouted, using my son, using my son, using my son, but he did not.
the Daughter was also taken to hospital. But even though it is not so, that the daughter had no injuries, she lost also the life.
