Moments of teen Natasha
me to get the second epipen right away.”
He quickly jabbed the second epipen into her upper thigh, but it failed to relieve the symptoms.
The statement added: “Natasha said that she still couldn’t breathe and desperately looked at me, she said ‘Daddy, help me, I can’t breathe.’”
She soon lost consciousness and cabin staff were aided by a junior doctor in applying CPR for the remainder of the journey.
Her father was at her side throughout, while her friend Bethany held her hand.
He recalled being “totally focused on saving her life” and “begging her to fight and live”.
As hope began to fade that Natasha would survive in hospital, her father put a phone to her ear so her mother and brother could say goodbye.
Her mother Tanya could be seen wiping her eyes as she listened to the statement.
“The pain and agony of the call was beyond anything I have known,” the statement said of the moment Mr Ednan-Laperouse broke the news to Natasha’s mother. “These calls I had to make were the worst of my life. “Each of them was completely overwhelmed, distressed and shocked.” Mr Ednan-Laperouse then called his own mother and asked her to visit a branch of Pret A Manger in west London to examine the sandwich. Finding nothing on the label or on the shelf, his mother made inquiries at the counter and was handed a folder of information. “My mother looked down the list and found that the baguette dough had sesame seed inside it,” the statement said.
“I was stunned that a big food company like Pret could mislabel a sandwich and this could cause my daughter to die.”
Mr Campbell suggested on Monday that Natasha’s father “must unfortunately be mistaken” about his recollections of the food’s packaging, saying they do not typically display ingredients.
However, Mr Ednan-Laperouse responded that while he never bought food from Pret, he would regularly go inside branches to inspect the food and found some did have such labels, while others did not.
He added: “There was no label on the fridge, I have got an eagle eye for such things.
“The vigilance levels that me and my wife have are like that of a hawk – if there is some there to be seen, we are going to be seeing it.”
Natasha had been travelling to Nice for a four-day break with her best friend at the start of what should have been “the best summer ever”, her parents said in an earlier statement.
The inquest is due to last until Friday.
