ISIS terrorists stabbed 21-year-old nanny to death after she tripped while fleeing in high heels

By: Will Metcalfe, Yahoo News UK, 13 May 2019:

The youngest victim of the London Bridge attack was fatally stabbed in the neck after she fell over in her high heels, an inquest heard.

Australian Sara Zelenak, 21, appeared to lose her balance just at the terrorists crashed their hire van into railings on the bridge and got out armed with 12 inch ceramic knives.

Briton James McMullan, 32, rushed to help her up but they were both set upon, the Old Bailey was told.

Ms Zelenak suffered deep gashes to her neck and Mr McMullan was stabbed once in the chest.

Police officers found Ms Zelenak mortally injured still clutching her mobile phone and immediately started CPR.

However, the court heard there were only three paramedics around as the scene was made safe, and one of them decided she could not be saved.

Erick Siguenza filmed terrified people screaming and running away as Ms Zelenak and Mr McMullan were attacked.

He told the court: “As soon as the van crashed they stepped out and the driver stabbed the woman that had jumped out to get out of the way of the van crashing. That’s when they started stabbing her. I believe there was a gentleman trying to help her get up and he was stabbed as well.

“As I was recording there was a lot of screaming and just people realising what was going on and just shouting in general.”

Gareth Patterson QC, representing the victims’ families, said: “We know Sara Zelenak was found within minutes at the top of the steps and we know the young white woman with long hair had stab injuries.

“We also know she was wearing high heels and on the ground it was quite wet that night.

“From what you saw of this man helping her, did you get the impression she lost her balance?”

The victims of the London Bridge terrorist attack (top row left to right) Christine Archibald, James McMullan, Alexandre Pigeard, Sebastien Belanger, (bottom row left to right) Kirsty Boden, Sara Zelenak, Xavier Thomas and Ignacio Echeverria as an inquest intio their deaths is due to open at the Old Bailey, London.

 

The witness said: “Yes. She was completely on the ground. He just grabbed her left arm and gently tried to pick her up but by then the attackers were in close proximity and that’s when they started attacking.

“There was no time for him to be able to help her up because the driver and the other terrorists were already running towards them.”

The inquest heard how Ms Zelenak had been out for a drink with her friend Priscila Goncalves on the evening of June 3 2017.

CCTV footage showed Ms Zelenak in blue jeans, white shirt, leather jacket and black lace-up high heel shoes.

Giving evidence, Ms Goncalves told how they were heading to a bar by London Bridge when they heard a “crash”.

She told the court: “When we were going down the stairs and then I heard something and then we went up the stairs to see what happened and people started saying ‘run’ and that’s what we did.”

Ms Golcalves tried to contact her friend on Facebook after she took refuge in a hotel but she was unable to get a response.
