Mother Mourning Daughter's Death Outraged By Insensitive Letter

In November 2014, 12-year-old Charlotte Nunez was hit by a train while taking a picture of herself on a platform with a friend. Now, her mother has been hit with a £14,000 BILL - for damage done to the tracks.

Carla Nunez described the demand sent by from Belgium's national rail operator, SNCB, less than a year after her daughter Charlotte's death as a "hammer blow." Mrs. Nunez said, "The letter says that my daughter is a minor and that I am responsible for damage caused by the accident."

She went on to say "These people cannot have children to be capable of doing something so monstrous. I have a good mind to go and ring on the doorbell of Jo Cornu (chief executive of SNCB) to ask him what in the hell possessed his company to do such a thing." David Geerts, Socialist MP, said: "How can one ignore the emotional impact of such a letter, sent to people who have lost a loved one? Instead of sending a bill for damages, even if they don’t have to pay themselves, it would have been better to show some empathy."
