Eve, the Manchester Arena bombing victim, has died four years later.
A HEARTBROKEN mother has paid homage to her daughter, who died four years after the Manchester Arena terror attack traumatized her.
On May 22, 2017, Eve Aston, 20, was caught up in Salman Abedi’s suicide bombing attack, which killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.
She became unhappy and afraid of loud noises as a result of it. “She’s left such a massive void, everyone can’t believe it,” Amanda, 55, added. We’re heartbroken; it feels like a nightmare. It’s as if she’ll step back through the door and yell, “Gotcha!”
On July 23, her father Andrew, 43, discovered her dead in her bedroom.
The coroner is now looking into the matter. Last Friday, a balloon release was planned to commemorate her life.
Amanda, from Wolverhampton, wrote on a fundraising website to support her family that the terror incident “had its toll” on Eve and left her afraid of loud noises as she coped with post-traumatic stress disorder.
“She was a joyful soul from the moment she was born, she had a really funny sense of humour, and she was a daddy’s girl,” she continued.
“She was always surrounded by pals and enjoyed sleepovers. She had a large number of pals for whom she was always available. Her siblings and sisters had a lot of fun with her. She was dressed up to go to the Ariana Grande performance with her father because Ariana was her idol.
“She could sing every note in the book.
They were on the opposite side of the building from where the bomb detonated. She’s returned to Manchester since then and enjoys placing flowers on people’s doorsteps. She had post-traumatic stress disorder after the event, and her depression worsened. After the concert, she couldn’t sleep or hear booms. She was heartbroken for the 22.
“She appeared to be returning to her old self in the last few weeks, having dropped a significant amount of weight.
“Her father discovered her in her room, and we’re still waiting to learn what happened.”
Bomber Abedi was killed in the bomb, and his younger brother Hashem, aged 22, was sentenced to a minimum of 55 years in prison last year for his role in plotting the attack.
A public inquiry after the massacre concluded in June that a series of security lapses had allowed Abedi to walk in and explode his lethal weapon.
