14 more victims have been identified in the aftermath of the horrific Manchester bombing that killed 22 people Monday night. After attending an Ariana Grande concert, thousands of fans, many of them teenagers, exited the Manchester Arena, ready to head home or be picked up by their awaiting parents. Instead, the crowd fell victim to a suicide bomber, who killed dozens of concertgoers instantly and injured 59 others. Georgina Callander, 18, and Saffie Rose Roussos, 8, were the first victims identified in the attack, and now, nearly all 22 victims have been named.

Many concertgoers were teens, eager for a chance to see Ariana perform. Among them were friends Sorrel Leczkowski and Nell Jones, just 14-years-old, and schoolgirl Meghan Hurley.

Olivia Campbell, 15, also lost her life in the attacked. “RIP my darling precious gorgeous girl,” her mother Charlotte wrote on Facebook.

In addition to the parents who lost children, many children lost their parents in the horror that unfolded. Alex and Patrycia Klis were being picked up by their parents, Angelika, 39, and Marcin, 42, after the concert, but the couple didn’t survive the attack. “They are just crying and crying, we're all sad - we've almost run out of tears now,” a friend of the family said.


Jane Tweddle-Taylor, wife of former Hartlepool United, Blackpool and Wrexham footballer Mark Taylor, was there with her friend Michelle Kiss to pick up her friend’s children from the show. Neither woman survived. Jane’s husband called her a “lovely lady and a good mother” who was “full of life.”
