A month after the hostage-taking at Cologne Central Station, the 14-year-old victim of the arson attack is still struggling with the consequences. The 14-year-old Lika from Hennef suffered severe burns at the time.She was operated for the seventh time last week. Now, for the first time, the mother of the child has expressed herself in public. She said the 14-year-old had gone to Cologne with her girlfriend to take photos on the day of the attack. The two wanted to eat a burger at the main station and then to the banks of the Rhine. They noticed the suspect in the restaurant, the mother said. They then drew the attention of the employees of the fast food restaurant to the fact that the man spread liquids and had a pistol. Then everything went very quickly. While the girlfriend escaped from the restaurant unharmed, the 14-year-old Lika slipped and suffered severe burns.Lika has been in hospital for four weeks now. Her mother practically lives with her. Her father and brother also visit her daily. Lika will probably not be able to climb stairs so quickly. Therefore the newly bought house in Hennef has to be rebuilt.
