Fifteen-year-old Charlotte Fawell is heartbroken and angry following the death of her mother Wendy in the Manchester terror attacks last Monday.
The teenager has told The Sun she almost suffered the same tragic fate as her mother.
Charlotte explained that she only survived the blast because she misread a text from her mum.
“I read the text wrong. If I’d have gone to the right door, I might not be here now. But I took a door on the left instead,” she recounts.
The teenager recalled the terrifying moment the explosion rang out at the arena.
“I was walking out, a massive bang went off and the entire arena shook. I knew people were dead,” she recounts. “I was ringing and ringing my mum, hoping she’d been knocked unconscious and she might wake up and answer — but she never did.”
Wendy Fawell—was a beloved primary school teacher—was killed in the foyer of Manchester Arena.
Charlotte hit back at bomber Salman Abedi, saying: “How would you feel if you were my age and you had no mum? She promised to be here forever and now she isn’t — because of you.”
The terror attacks have been described as the worst in the past decade in the UK and have claimed the lives of 22 people.
