The mum of the youngest confirmed victim of the Manchester terror attack – is now awake and aware of the horrifying situation.

The mum of the youngest Manchester attack victim, Saffie, is awake and recently learned of her daughter’s death.

Earlier this week, Ms Roussos was taken off life support when her condition improved and was now “aware of the situation”, a family friend said.

“Mum is awake and out of surgery, she is talking, and is fully aware of the situation and is now out of any danger,” close family-friend Mike Swanny posted on Facebook.

“I am very proud of the strength that Lisa and Andrew have as a couple their bravery though this is commendable.

“She’s still in hospital, but she’s moving her legs, which is fantastic. Now they can start to deal and rebuild their lives.”

Previously we shared…

Saffie, 8, was at the Ariana Grande concert with her older sister Ashee, and her mum Lisa, who are both currently in hospital. Her mum is reportedly fighting for her life in a coma, reports 7 News.

A desperate search was launched online to find Saffie after she was separated in the carnage from her family.

Neighbour and friend of the family, Salman Patel, told the Daily Mail the heartbreaking news that Lisa has no idea her daughter is dead.

“Saffie’s sadly passed away and her mother, we understand, isn’t aware. I’m praying for the family, it is totally heartbreaking.”

A British-born 22 year old has been named as the man behind the detonation of the nail bomb that tragically killed 22 people and left 59 injured.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all involved. Such a horrible tragedy that will never be forgotten.

  • i wonder how the victims have got on now. We don’t hear anything more about them even though what they went through was a big deal


  • Tragically lives were lost, some fighting for their lives and many others with less serious injuries. Some people can actually hear noises and talking while in a coma, so she may in fact know if anybody has commented while standing or sitting in her room. (There has been cases of this reported). To all who passed away as a result of this terrorist attack may you rest in peace.
    I also pass on my sympathy to those who lost their loved ones because of this disgraceful act.


  • Such a devastating event to happen and mainly aimed at young children and their parents. I pray for the families suffering and who have lost loved ones. What is the world coming to.


  • This is beyond devastating, it makes me want to cry.


  • This is heartbreaking. Every time I see little Saffy’s face it makes me so sad. The family will be in so much shock and grief whilst still waiting on Saffy’s Mum’s recovery. It will be such a sad and long road ahead. My thoughts are with them.


  • Just shocking, RIP little princess. Just breaks my heart.


  • My prayers and loving thoughts are sent to this mum and all that are affected by this horrible hate incident.
    LoVe and heartfelt Blessings.


  • RIP little one. Your poor mum will find out soon. Terrible thing to happen and it should never have happened in the first place. Hope the police get the whole cell and lock them up.


  • Its heartbreaking the devastation these attacks cause. I can’t fathom what possess people to do these things. My thoughts are with those still fighting for their lives, the injured, those who have lost loved ones in this senseless act, the city of Manchester, and Ariana Grande, who only sought to entertain and bring joy to these people and now feels immense pain for the loss.


  • I just don’t understand how someone can deliberately hurt & kill another human being like that. My heart is broken for those who were killed & injured. To Ariana Grande, please believe that it’s not you’re fault & don’t let this horrible thing affect your career


  • Such sad and devastating news is unbearable for anyone, let alone not when you’re fighting for your life.
    My thought and prayers go out to all who’re affected by this horrible incident.


  • So sad that any family has to deal with this.


  • devastating for all involved, heartbreaking


  • RIP baby girl. The whole world aches for you and your family.
