"My five-month-old daughter was wounded by a shell's fragments"

views: 1082

Liliia is only five months old. She underwent several surgeries for the past two days. A shell hit our house, and my daughter was wounded by a fragment.

My five-month-old daughter was wounded by a shell's fragments

At first, I didn't understand was was going on. When it fell, I covered my daughter with my body. Then she disappeared... I thought I would not find her again. But I heard her crying. I dug her out from under the rubble. I didn't see right away that her tummy was wounded. When we went down to the basement and lit candles, I saw it. She was conscious all the time, even when we were going to the hospital. The military took us there.

Lilia was saved by military medics. Then doctors in Kurakhove and Dnipropetrovsk helped us a lot. Father and the older children are now living with the neighbors, because we no longer have a home.
