A brave mom died in her daughter's arms on Christmas Day after she was stabbed at a house party trying to save her daughter.
Charlotte Reat, 21, said her mom Jayne, 43, was knifed several times after she received two stab wounds to the head at a property in Lisburn, Belfast.
“I will never forget as my mum was murdered in front of my eyes and then later died in my arms,” she wrote. “I can still feel her in my arms and hear her screams of pain and see the panic on her face.”
"Today will be a day I will never forget as my mum was murdered in front of my eyes and then later died in my arms.
"I can still feel her in my arms and hear her screams of pain and see the panic on her face.
"My mum died saving me; I was stabbed twice in the head, once in my face and once to the back of my neck."
Four ambulance crews were dispatched to the scene at 6 a.m. local time on Christmas morning. Police officers attempted emergency resuscitation on one of the injured party members, the Belfast Telegraph reported.
Three other people were rushed to Royal Victoria Hospital with possible stab wounds.
It is still unclear what started the brawl, but police have launched a murder investigation and arrested a 19-year-old man Monday, according to the Telegraph.
“Jayne Toal Reat you died saving my life and I wish could trade places with you,” the grieving 21-year-old wrote. “I promise I will get you justice!”
