A LIT­TLE girl or­phaned in a hor­ror M1 crash that killed eight peo­ple is re­cov­er­ing well in hospi­tal, her fam­ily say.

Shra­vathi Ra­ma­sub­ra­ma­nian, five, was found trapped un­der­neath a chair in a minibus flat­tened by two lor­ries on Satur­day morn­ing.

Her fa­ther Karthikeyan and mother La­vanya were among those killed.

The young­ster had been in in­ten­sive care but her bro­ken­hearted grand­mother re­vealed yes­ter­day that she was now “out of dan­ger”. Gran Malti said: ® “Shra­vathi is out of dan­ger but she is heav­ily se­dated as the wounds are still fresh.

“We only hope that she heals quickly. We do not know the fu­ture plan yet. We will see where Shra­vathi will live. We are yet to be­lieve that our daugh­ter and son-in-law are no more.”

The fam­ily were trav­el­ling in the early hours to catch a Eurostar train to France for a hol­i­day.

Rel­a­tives from In­dia have flown to her bed­side at Birm­ing­ham Chil­dren’s hospi­tal.
