Floral tributes to 'little princess' Imie
1:12pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
FLORAL tributes have been left at the Kidderminster canal where six-year-old Imie Harrison died after falling into the water.
Messages were left by Imie’s family and friends who called her a “little princess” and said that they loved her “millions”.
Imie had been playing with her twin brother and friends by the Worcestershire and Staffordshire Canal at Springfield Park on Tuesday evening when three of the children fell in.
Emergency services were called to the incident at about 6.20pm and found Imie still in the water in cardiac arrest.
She was pulled out and resuscitated but died shortly after arriving at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
The other two children had managed to climb out of the canal by the time emergency services had arrived and were treated for hypothermia.
Bunches of flowers and cards have been left at the Wolverley Court Bridge today.
One card said: “Dear sister, our princess, going to miss you so much, Imie. We love you millions. Sleep tight baby. Lots of loves and hugs. Sam, Amy, Abby, Lottie and CJ.”
Another, from Imie’s mother, said: “Darling daughter, Mummy’s little princess, love you forever and always, until we are together again. My babe.”
Another card said: “We will all miss you, little princess. You’re up in the stars now. We all love you so much. You’re safe now babe.”
