The model relayed the experience to the Irish Independent saying, “It had been a normal day, we’d been out shopping and went for dinner but there was nothing out of the ordinary, nothing to suggest this would happen.

“We were in bed at about 3am local time when we got the phone call from home. People were checking to see if we were okay. We had to turn on the news to find out what was going on.”

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims of this horrible tragedy.
