A 20-year-old woman who survived the terror attack at the Ariana Grande concert in the UK has been found dead — four years after the massacre, which left the young woman with depression and PTSD, according to a report.
Eve Aston was found dead July 23 in the bedroom of her Wolverhampton home, the Birmingham Mail reported. Her cause of death is still unknown.
She attended the singer’s concert at the Manchester Arena on May 22, 2017, when 22 people died in the attack by British suicide bomber Salman Abedi.
In addition to the deaths, more than 800 concertgoers were left “with physical and deep psychological injuries,” authorities have said.
Aston’s mother told the outlet that her daughter had struggled with loud noises and had post-traumatic stress disorder after the attack.
“From the moment she was born she was a jolly soul, she had a very funny sense of humor and was a daddy’s girl,” Amanda Aston, 55, told the Birmingham Mail. “She always had friends around her and was having sleepovers. She had lots of friends who she was always there for.”
She said Eve went to the concert with her father, Andrew, 43, who was the one who found her dead in her room.
“They were on the other side, not where the bomb went off. Since then she has been back to Manchester and has loved putting flowers down for people,” Amanda said.
“After the concert, she started suffering from PTSD. She loved cars and was looking at getting a job working with cars but her depression got worse. She couldn’t sleep or hear bangs after the concert.”
She said the family is “heartbroken” by the devastating loss.
“It’s like a bad dream. It’s like she’s going to walk back through the door and say, ‘Got ya!’ She’s left such a big hole — everyone’s saying they can’t believe it,” the grieving mom said.
“She was such a beautiful person and she should be here. We want to give her a good sendoff. You shouldn’t have to bury your daughter. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.”
