Ivan and Eva are the parents of Vera, the girl who died 7 months ago today when she was ejected from an inflatable in the Valencian town of Mislata. Since her death, they continue to share videos and photographs of the little girl with a dual purpose: to keep her memory alive and to warn parents about the danger that, in her opinion, these apparently harmless facilities may imply.
“We never thought we would be parents of an angel. It is what it is, but right now we would give this and all the lives we had to dive with our little girl, instead of missing her every second. Your joy keeps us alive”, Iván said this Tuesday on his Twitter account.
Previously, he had transferred a warning for the summer dates. “Remember: Be very careful with inflatables and attractions at summer parties. Many facilities are not safe. Vera was robbed of her life at the Mislata fair in full happiness. Those responsible are trying to disguise an irreparable homicide as an accident.”

The tragedy took place on January 4, 2022. “Six months without Vera and every day her absence is more unbearable. They took away her life and with it many lives that she filled with her joy, her kindness and her energy. Always singing, laughing, playing… she Keep it up beautiful, wherever you are. We love you, “said her father on July 4.
That bleak Christmas afternoon, a strong gust of wind blew the facility away and several children were injured. The base of the castle lifted off the ground from the central area. The parents hurried over to pin the ride to the ground. They did not succeed and the castle went flying, from right to left.
Two of the minors who were playing at that time, Vera and Cayetana4 and 8 years old respectively, passed away shortly after in the hospital for injuries caused by being thrown from the bouncy castle and hitting the ground.

The meticulous work of the Homicide Group of the National Police found irregularities in the anchorage of the attraction, since the castle was subject to broken and deteriorated ropes.
In addition, the engineer who was to supervise the installation did not go to the site to check the security measures, despite initially stating that he was in Mislata. Police have found that lied after analyzing the positioning of your mobile phone.
“A loose inflatable at a fair that was searched… 180 km away. The death of two girls, and they are not the first, is reason enough to make the safety of children’s attractions a priority“Iván Pérez said about it through his social networks.
5 months ago we arrived at the fair of @AjMislata the whole family. A park full of emotion, as Vera said. She was so happy… There they took her life and our happiness. The little train we made at home no longer makes sense without its little driver #SmileVera pic.twitter.com/eX9pLCZqbs
