The parents of the 7-year-old U.K. girl who died when the bouncy castle she was playing in blew away over the weekend are mourning their daughter.
“Words just can’t explain how I am feeling right now, life is just truly cruel,” Summer Grant’s mother Cara Blackie said in a statement released through Essex police. “Summer was a bright beautiful and most loving little girl it so unfair that you have been taken it just doesn’t make sense, I’m truly heartbroken.”
Grant’s father, Lee Grant, said: “I never thought our beautiful angel would be taken away from us or that we would outlive her. She was the most happy, polite and beautiful girl in the world. I still can’t come to terms she’s not here. We all love you so so much, you will always be with us; love you to the moon and back, all our love Daddy, Mummy and family xxxx.”
Summer was playing in a bouncy castle on Saturday at an Easter fair in Essex when the castle blew away, the Guardian reports. She died from multiple injuries.
According to the Essex Police Department, a 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence.
