First picture of Spanish mum killed in Paris bakery blast

A woman killed in Saturday’s Paris bakery blast has been named as Spanish mum-of-three Laura Sanz Nombela.

The 38-year-old supermarket worker was on a romantic break with her husband Luis Miguel and was staying at a hotel opposite the bakery where a suspected gas leak caused a deadly explosion that claimed the lives of four people.

Laura, who had three children aged ten, five, and three, lived in the town of Burgillos near Toledo – an hour’s drive south of Madrid.

She and her husband were visiting the French capital for the first time and had left their kids with with Laura’s dad Jose Luis.


He told Spanish newspaper El Pais, who were given the photo by her father: “My son-in-law asked my wife if we could babysit the children while they were away because he wanted to surprise my daughter.

“It was a romantic break, the first time they had visited Paris.”

A neighbour in Burgillos described Laura as “very nice.”

“I have been able to speak to her husband and offer him as mayoress the condolences of the city of Toledo.

“My solidarity and support to their family and friends.”

The other three people killed by the Paris blast were two firemen and a second woman whose body was found under rubble after the fireball ripped through the quiet Parisian suburb at around 9am local time on Saturday.

Around 50 people were injured in the explosion, 10 in a critical condition – and around 150 were evacuated from the area and housed in temporary accommodation because of damage to nearby buildings.

More than 200 emergency responders attended the scene, France’s Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said.

Eyewitnesses said they saw a huge fire erupt in the building blown out by the blast around an hour after the emergency services arrived at the scene.
