At least 12 people were injured, including two children, in an attack with a corrosive substance in the Lambeth neighborhood of London. The incident occurred last Wednesday (31). According to authorities, the suspect who threw the substance is still at large.

Mother and daughters in serious health condition

In the attack, a 31-year-old woman and her daughters aged 8 and 3 were the main victims. They are currently hospitalized. “While none of their conditions are life-threatening, the woman and younger girl’s injuries could be life-changing. It will be some time before hospital staff can say how serious this could be“, reported the London Metropolitan Police.

Other victims and health status

In addition to the mother and children, other victims were affected by the substance. The police reported that “three women – two in their 30s and one in their 50s – who were injured when they bravely went to help their family, have been discharged from hospital with minor burns. A 50-year-old man who also helped refused hospital treatment for minor injuries he suffered“. Furthermore, five police officers who responded to the incident also received treatment for their injuries and have already left the hospital.

Investigation underway

London’s Metropolitan Police have launched an urgent investigation to investigate the case and locate the suspect. Authorities also asked for the cooperation of the local population to provide any information that could lead to the arrest of the individual responsible for the attack.

Attacks using corrosive substances have been a cause for concern in London in recent years, with an alarming rise in incidents. These attacks leave deep physical and psychological scars on victims and are severely punished by British law.
