Aix-en-Provence: the mother who lost her baby filed a complaint after the altercation
“We were preparing for the arrival of my daughter, the whole family. For me, I didn’t think of cradling her dead in my arms, but of cradling her with the little cries of the baby who says: ‘mom’. It had only been four months, but every morning, she woke me up kicking me saying: ‘Mommy, I’m here.’ And today my daughter is in a coffin. She’s not with her mother. She would have breathed, she would have lived if these people had not done that. My life is destroyed, there is nothing worse for a mother than to lose her child, “said the victim at the microphone of BFM Marseille Provence. She also filed a complaint.
