- Story Text: A Romanian woman visiting London caught up in this week's terror attack is in critical but stable condition after surgery, according to the Romanian ambassador for Britain.
Dan Mihalache said it was a miracle the young lady survived after being plunged into the River Thames when a man ploughed down pedestrians in a car on Westminster Bridge.
The ambassador, speaking in an interview, said the victim was on a holiday with her boyfriend who was going to propose to her the same day.
The death toll from the attack grew to five as police said one of the injured, a 75-year-man, had died in hospital after his life support was withdrawn. That number included the attacker Khalid Masood, 52, who was shot dead by police.
