As girl of 15 is held, mother’s haunting cry when she found Katie, 7, dying from stab wounds
No, No! It’s My Little Girl
GirlRob McCartney, who lives in the adjacent cul-de-sac, heard Katie’s mother shouting ‘Help! Help! Get an ambulance.’
He said he saw a child ‘lying on the field’ with two police officers attending to her.
‘I turned around and saw the mother was in a state of great distress, crying and shouting out for her daughter. It was very upsetting,’ said the 50-year-old consultant engineer.
‘She was moving back and forth between the playing field and the street and was very distraught. Her husband or partner then arrived and put his arms around her trying to pacify her but their distress was obvious, it was terrible.’
Another resident said: ‘The mother was on her knees in the middle of the road, crying.’
Katie was put into an ambulance on a stretcher while wearing an oxygen mask.
Mrs Rough is believed to have travelled to the scene by car.
The semi-detached family home on the Foxwood estate is half a mile away.
Police have appealed for people who saw two girls in the area to come forward.
The girl who has been charged cannot be identified for legal reasons.
A GoFund Me page has been sent up to help Katie’s family.
