New York girl found in Manchester hospital after disappearing during Ariana Grande concert attack

May 25, 2017

New York resident Ashley Taylor had visited Manchester, England, with her friend Hailey Wilson to attend the Ariana Grande concert on Monday. Taylor and Wilson were separated during the concert, and Wilson says that she had been searching for her friend — to no avail — ever since she heard the bomb go off.

“I was at different phase of arena, but soon as I heard explosion I ran out of the concert with everyone but as soon as I came out, I went back in,” Wilson told Buzzfeed News. “Me and her parents are going right now will visit more hospitals and clinics in case she’s there [I don’t know] what to do her mom is really not in a walking state she’s crying since morning.”

Fortunately, Wilson has announced that Taylor has finally been found — alive, if not well — in a Manchester hospital. After suffering burns and a spinal injury during the attack, Taylor had fallen unconscious and only woke recently, Wilson said.

Another teenager, 15-year-old Laura McIntyre, has also been found alive after a long period of being missing. In total, the Manchester attack killed 22 people, and injured more than 50 — with many of the victims being either mothers or young girls.
