Girl, 9, finds her mum dead

Evening Times - - NEWS - BY TOM TORRANCE

A GLAS­GOW mum was found dead by her young daugh­ter af­ter fall­ing out of bed in the night.

Michelle Clougherty, 40, from Partick, trag­i­cally passed away on New Year’s Day in what is be­ing de­scribed as a “dev­as­tat­ing ac­ci­dent”.

Her daugh­ter Mia, nine, looked on as hus­band Alan des­per­ately tried to re­sus­ci­tate her.

A Go­FundMe page, set up by fam­ily friend Caro­line McLag­gan, has since raised more than £2000 to help cover funeral costs.

Caro­line said:”You can only imag­ine the trauma that this dis­cov­ery has had not only on Alan, but his poor daugh­ter Mia at such a sen­si­tive age and stage in her life.

“This poor lit­tle girl had to wit­ness her dad at­tempt to re­sus­ci­tate mum – any­thing we can do to help ease this pain would be much ap­pre­ci­ated.”

Po­lice say there are no sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances.
