Police Name First Victim of Manchester Terror Attack
After the harrowing ordeal at Manchester, the first victim has a name to a face: Georgina Callander, a 16-year-old girl. Last night, Georgina attended the Ariana Grande concert when an alleged suicide bomber attacked the audience only a few minutes after Ariana's gig had finished at 10:35 PM.
Sadly, Georgina (along with 21 others at the time of publishing this), have not survived the attack. She is the first person to have been officially named by the police in Manchester. Confirmed by emergency services who arrived at the scene, at least 56 people (including children) have been critically injured.
Affectionately known as Gina, friends, and family are mourning the loss of her by paying tributes online.
