yesterday say their world has crashed. Do we know any more about

what has happened? The girls school has stayed close to

pupils today. It was yesterday afternoon when emergency services

:00:36.:00:39.

were called to Drayton Manor theme park. The staff there had told Evha

ride. She was given medical treatment and airlifted to

Birmingham's Children's Hospital, but before the helicopter had even

:00:52.:00:55.

landed, the 11-year-old girl had died. A short while ago, we heard

:00:56.:00:58.

from the school headteacher. She was a lovely,

:00:59.:01:01.

sweet-natured girl, and she was loved by

:01:02.:01:04.

everyone at the school. As a school and as a community

with our huge loss. Evha Jannath's family have also

That's right, they have released a written statement. They said

:01:43.:01:47.

"Yesterday, our world was torn apart by the news that our daughter and

little girl, full of love and always smiling. Words cannot describe the
