9-Year-Old Girl Is Killed in Her Home – Grieving Parents Share Video from before Her Death
One family from Liverpool, England, was enjoying an evening at home when a tragedy entered their lives without warning. The devastating incident claimed a little girl's life, and the grieving father shared a clip of his precious child.
Children are their parent's pride and joy, bringing unprecedented happiness. Seeing them hurting is any parent's worst nightmare and losing a beloved little one leads to unimaginable heartache and pain.
When their precious daughter lost her life, a mother and father were shattered. They wanted justice for her life and refused to let her passing be in vain.
A Sweet Little Girl
Nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel was a bundle of joy, exuding positivity and love wherever she went. The little angel adored anything pink, and she had a sweet demeanor that allowed her to climb deep into the hearts of many people.
Olivia's father, John Francis Pratt, described her as "a real bright spark who knew her mind, had no problem making friends (she would talk to anyone) and loved to laugh and make people laugh."
To display the abundant joy within Olivia, her dad released a heartbreakingly beautiful video ... The clip captured the essence of the little girl and struck a chord in the hearts of many people.
The father shared special memories with Olivia and highlighted why she was the perfect daughter for him and the rest of his family. Tragically, they wouldn't be able to make new memories with her.
Snatched Away from Her Loved Ones
The little girl was "cruelly snatched away" from her loved ones in August 2022 when a gunman killed her while she was in her home. The shocking incident left everyone traumatized and grieving for the child. John said:
"Words can’t express the pain we are going through. Those responsible need to know what they have done. We have been deprived of a real light in our lives."
The Family Shared a Video of Their Angel
To display the abundant joy within Olivia, her dad released a heartbreakingly beautiful video taken while they were on the merry-go-round at a market in Liverpool. The clip captured the essence of the little girl and struck a chord in the hearts of many people.
The giggling little girl was excited as she clung to her father for support while showing off a cheery smile. She also played hide and seek with the camera and undeniably enjoyed her carefree youth—tragically, it was cut short.
Creating a Safe Place for Everyone
The family was grateful for the inpouring of support and kindness. The dad asked citizens to come forward if they had any helpful information, and the police also appealed to anyone who may have evidence to assist in the case.
John insisted that more needed to be done to combat these instances of violence so no other kids would face the same fate as his daughter. He expressed:
"We don’t want another child to lose their life ... and we don't want to see another family suffer like we are suffering now. Olivia’s death cannot be in vain, and we want people to feel safe and be safe."
A service for the precious angel was scheduled for September 15, 2022, and people were asked to wear something pink in honor of Olivia. Click here to watch the video of the sweet girl enjoying life to the fullest.
