Alexandria – Mohamed El-Badry and Mohamed Amer:
Spontaneously commensurate with her age, the girl “Makkah” was looking towards the sea waiting for the return of her mother, “Ghada”, but she did not know that her waiting would be long, so her mother was the victim of a drowning accident in Al-Safa Beach, which resulted in the death of 4 people from one family among them 3 brothers.
The two-year-old clung to a friend of the family who embraced her during the search for the bodies of the victims, without realizing that she would not see her mother again, and steps away from her and another girl stood in the arms of an infant no more than 4 months old, the younger brother of the child Makkah.
Ghada, a 19-year-old, left without knowing when she called her two children, that it would be the last meeting, leaving behind two children who do not know how to live without them.
A family neighbor at their summer residence in Al-Safa Beach said that they had received the two children to provide care for them temporarily until the remaining bodies of the family members were recovered.
