Christmas turned into a funeral after there were dead and injured in the state of Waukesha,
Residents gather in Waukesha on Sunday to celebrate the 58th annual Christmas parade, which was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is often held before Thanksgiving, and this year’s feast ceremony was held under the slogan “Comfort and Joy.”
But at about 4:39 pm local time, the situation turned upside down, laughter and happiness turned to crying, screaming and sadness,
Where a red SUV broke into the celebration at speed and took innocent people on its way, and the victims and the wounded fell, the number of dead reached 5, and the number of injured 40, including children.
And the voice of the rakh became louder and louder instead of the sound of the celebration music.
Surveillance camera videos show the car and how fast it breaks through
The police detained the driver of the car and he is now in custody, and there is no information about the killer so far, so the competent authority has not announced the identity of the perpetrator.
During the storming, a sound of gunfire appeared in Waukesha, Thompson said that a Waukesha police officer was the one who fired when he saw the car speeding in the hope that the driver would take a guess and calm down from the speed of the car, but to no avail, and no pedestrians were injured by this bullet.
The co-owner of the Aspire Dance Center studio (Chris Germain), was participating in the show with a number of children up to 70 and their ages ranged from two years to 18, and upon seeing the accident, he sped off and jumped out of his car and gathered the children who were with him until he reached a safe place and then started checking them.
On Twitter: White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said President Joe Biden was briefed Sunday evening that all needed assistance is being provided to local officials to cover the damage, and “our hearts are with the families and the entire community.”
The names of the five victims have been announced
*Four of them were with the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies (Virginia Sorenson, Lana Owen, Tamara Durand) and one was a volunteer (Wilhelm Hospel).
The fifth person is Gene Kulich.
The heartbreaking thing happened to him, the death of an eight-year-old boy, Jackson, after his injury worsened in the hospital following the Christmas accident in Waukhacha.
