This Manchester Attack Survivor Is Live-Tweeting Her Recovery
As the world grieves for the victims of the Manchester bombing and people are getting bee tattoos to show their support, one of the survivors, 15-year-old Millie Robinson, is dealing with the ordeal by live-tweeting her hospital-bound, post-surgery recovery — and in the process, giving the world the ray of light it needs after such a tragic event.
Monday night started out like no other for Robinson, who got the chance to meet Ariana Grande before the concert, surely a dream come true. But after the show, while leaving the arena to meet her dad, Robinson was injured by the explosion that left shrapnel embedded in both of her legs.
Though her dad found her and immediately attempted to stop the bleeding, the impact left “holes” in her limbs. Her mom revealed to The Sunday Times that the heroic teen actually told paramedics to “go and see other people who were more injured than her” during the chaotic tragedy.
Days later, Robinson remains in hospital and has been live-tweeting her experience to the amazement and delight of her supporters who now span the world.
Not to mention the fact that she received a very special guest when the Queen herself stopped by for a visit to check in on the victims of the bombing.
From the looks of it, this experience will only make her stronger and more fabulous in the end.
