At the beginning of October, a terrible road accident had occurred in Rome, the Italian capital and had claimed the lives of two young Belgians, originally from Kortrijk. The two young women were coming to the aid of someone who had been the victim of another accident when they were hit by another vehicle, the driver of which was drunk. With dramatic consequences since the two friends had been killed instantly.
Wibe is one of our compatriots who lost her life on October 9th. She was 25 and several months pregnant. It is a terrible new ordeal for this family of five children, who have not been spared the blows of fate.
Wibe’s mother died after a long battle with cancer while her father died in a road accident. Dramas that have strengthened the four sisters and their brother. But those who called themselves the “Fantastic Five” are once again orphaned by one of their members. “Wibe was always ready to help others,” a friend of the victim told Belang Van Limburg during the farewell ceremony for the young woman, which took place this weekend.
“When mom got sick, we knew she was going to lose her fight eventually,” said a Wibe sister. “For dad too, we managed to accept it after a while… Wibe, you were in such a hurry to see your little Mano arrive.” Life is so unfair… With us, nothing trivial happens, everything always has a fatal outcome… We don’t know anymore…”.
