The first named victim of the terror attack in Barcelona is Bruno Gulotta, the father of two young children. He was on holiday with his partner and two children – one of whom is about to start primary school and the other is seven months old, so young that she will never know her father.
Mr Gulotta was crushed to death on the Ramblas by the terrorist lorry while strolling down the Ramblas hand in hand with his 5-year-old son whom his wife Martina managed to snatch to safety in the nick of time, she was quoted as telling friends.
Martina was following her husband carrying their seven-month-old baby girl Aria in a rucksack she was wearing on her chest when Bruno was run down. Martina grabbed their son Alessandro, aged 5, and rushed both children to safety but Gulotta, aged 35, was killed instantly.
