Girl, 14, caught in Manchester blast called her dad while trapped under debris

THE TERRIFIED dad of a 14-year-old girl caught in the Manchester terror attack has revealed the harrowing moment she phoned him to say: “Daddy, Daddy, I can’t move my legs”.

Ella McGovern called her dad Rockey while trapped under debris following the devastating blast to say: “There’s blood everywhere. There’s been an explosion. I can’t move” before her phone went dead.

Rockey, 39, was in Scotland at the time of Monday's attack and frantically drove to Manchester to find Ella after the horror.

He told Rossendale Free Press: "I had to be up early and went to sleep and woke up after 10.30pm.

"I had about eight missed calls. Ella then rang me saying ‘Daddy, daddy, I can’t move my legs. There’s blood everywhere.

"There’s been an explosion. I can’t move’ and then her phone went dead.

"I was just thinking 'My God, what do I do'. I decided to get dressed, get in the car and drive down. I had to.

"I had family ringing me all the way down. I then met Ella and my wife at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.”

Ella had travelled to Manchester Arena to see Ariana Grande with a pal and had been looking forward to the concert for months.

She was buying t-shirts in the foyer when Salman Abedi detonated a nail bomb killing 22 people and injuring more than 100 more.

The teenager was left with around eight shrapnel wounds on her legs - some of which required stitches.

Rockey, who works in the military, said Ella was helped by an "amazing" woman from Ramsbottom who kept her company and contacted her family and an ambulance.

He added: "She was in the foyer where the main explosion happened and from what she’s mentioned people directly in front of her took the brunt of the blast.

“I think she was in the region of about 15m from the blast. I think both her ears are perforated.

“She had all the debris on her. She was absolutely covered head to toe in filth and blood. Pain-wise she is quite a tough little cookie but she’s let out quite a few snippets of information about what she’s seen.

“She was on the floor and had to brush other people off her to get out of the foyer area.”

He continued: "It’s widely known that events like this are mainly populated by children. Who would honestly target somebody like that?"

Abedi detonated a nail bomb at the end of an Ariana Grande concert killing 22 and injuring scores more on Monday.

Cops who raided Abedi's home in Fallowfield, Manchester were said to have found a "bombmaking workshop" with a chemical stockpile capable of creating several more explosive devices.

Investigators believe Abedi may have travelled to Syria after visiting family in Libya in the days leading up to Monday night's atrocity at Manchester Arena.

It was confirmed today Abedi passed through Turkey — often used as a gateway for ISIS fighters in Syria — and Germany days earlier.

Eight people are in custody in the UK in connection with the attack, and his brother and father are being held by authorities in Libya.
