FRIENDS and neighbours of Sara Cooper, the British holidaymaker found drowned in Calas de Mallorca on Thursday, and her seven-year-old daughter, who suffered severe multiple injuries after falling from the fifth-floor balcony of the room in which they were staying at a hotel in the resort, have held a church vigil to pray for the devastated family.
The seven-year-old is stable but still lying in a coma at Son Dureta hospital in Palma with her father Ian by her bedside.
On Thursday evening, the community in Foxton, Cambridgeshire, gathered at the village's Laurence Church.
Over 60 people showed their support for the Coopers, a family which has been left devastated by events of the past week according to father Ian. The tragic death of Sara and her daughter's fall shocked the local community in Foxton and the vigil was very emotional. The congregation was asked to pray for seven-year-old Gianna and Rev Christopher Strong thanked the skill of doctors at the hospital for the encouraging news that her condition is stable. The investigation into events of Monday, October 22 in Calas de Mallorca now hinges on the seven-year-old. Once she is fit and well enough police plan to ask her if she can remember what happened. However, detectives may have to wait a very long time.
Yesterday it was revealed that Interpol has issued an international warrant for a British holidaymaker who is understood to have witnessed Sara Cooper entering the water on Monday morning.
The tourist has since returned home to Britain but police are keen to talk to her.
