Almost one week on from the Bourke St tragedy, the mother of 10-year-old Thalia Hakin has only just learned of her daughter’s death.
Nathalie Hakin was seriously injured in Friday’s tragedy and has been in a critical condition all week, with much of the planning for her daughter’s funeral being carried out without her knowledge.
According to Thalia's father Tony, Nathalie only learned of her daughter's passing at 3am on Wednesday.
Speaking to news.com.au, Tony said, “Up to this morning she was not aware … So much of the planning had to be done behind her back. Nat woke up and said, ‘I know what happened. Some maniac got my family and I don’t know how to deal with it’.”
