A heavily-pregnant British mum has been crushed to death by an 18-wheeled lorry in a horror crash in Thailand. Popular vlogger Sophie Emma Rose hit the headlines last year after declaring women should nurse their children until they’re at least eight.
The 41-year-old even once spoke to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV’s This Morning about her dedication to the cause. She was six months pregnant with her second child when she was involved in the horror crash in Thalang, central Phuket, today. Sophie, originally from Blackpool, Lancashire, died after a motorbike she was riding on the back of was allegedly struck by the lorry.
She died after suffering fatal head injuries, while her boyfriend, Danny Glass, who was also in the smash, escaped with minor injuries. Danny, 29, later took to Facebook to pay tribute to his “precious” partner, who is survived by her five-year-old son, Shaye. He wrote: “I am in total shock as I’ve lost the most precious person I had ever connected. My brain keeps going into denial. I am distraught. She was also pregnant so I lost my child too.”
