Kent Car Bomb Injures Pregnant Victoria Fabian: Family Targeted?
She had to be pulled from her car, burnt and bleeding, by her husband Nick and a passing teenager. Her two sons aged 4 and 8 who were also in the car escaped unhurt. Nick Fabian is reported as being a bomb disposal expert with the British Army.
The explosion blew some homes' windows out and witnesses said Mrs Fabian was dragged from her car screaming 'my baby'. She was taken to Darent Valley Hospital with severe leg injuries.
It is reported that this incident is one of an ongoing series of hate attacks on the Fabians. Just before Christmas their car was set alight and the brake lines on their car have been cut several times. Police are investigating the explosion and an Army bomb disposal unit is sweeping the area.
Police were called to the village just after 1pm on Friday to reports of an explosion at the village near Meopham, north Kent, which blew some homes’ windows out. Witnesses said Mr Fabian, who worked at the Battersea Dogs Home in nearby West Kingsdown, tried to treat his heavily bleeding wife, who is six months pregnant, as she lay screaming “my baby”
Bomb disposal experts rushed to a quiet Kent village yesterday after a car mysteriously exploded, leaving a pregnant woman severely injured. Her two young sons were also inside but escaped unhurt after they were rescued from the vehicle by onlookers moments before it erupted into flames.
The vehicle was torn apart by the blast at Vigo, Kent. A bomb disposal squad was called in as neighbours, police and firemen rescued the mother and son.
