In a video posted by IOL, a clearly distraught and heartbroken Azmir Oosthuizen is seen describing the last few moments of his 7 year old daughter, Emaan Solomons’ life.
Holding back his tears, he says that he first got the news of the shooting through a WhatsApp group and his response was that he hopes it is not his daughter.
He got into his car and drove to see if she is fine but he was stopped by a neighbour who told him that the victim was Emaan.
“I just lost it, I couldn’t take it,” says Azmir.
When he got to the house, he says that his girl was just lying there, ‘like she was waiting for him’.
He says that he held her when she took her last breath.
“I felt her pulse, just two heartbeats and then… it went away.”
