Popular boys band sent a video to the victim of Alton Towers crash. 1D members said they would be delighted to see the girl at their future concert.
Leah Washington is one of the victims of Alton Towers crash. As The Smiler ride smashed into an empty stationary, the girl lost her leg. Doctors had to amputate it above the knee. After fans got to know about the tragedy, they started a campaign in order to ask One Direction to visit the girl.
A representative of One Direction confirmed that the band recorded a video for Leah and that she had seen it already. He explained that their schedule doesn’t allow boys to visit the girl in hospital. As a way out, 1D offered to send a ticket for any of their upcoming concerts for the girl. They also invited her to see them backstage.
Last weekend 17-year-old Leah Washington was supposed to see One Direction at the Capital FM Summertime Ball. But, due to the serious injury she couldn’t make it.
Her friend posted on Twitter that boys had to visit the girl as she was a great fan of them. The friend also wrote that Leah’s hospital room is covered with 1D posters.
On Monday Louis Tomlinson tweeted the girl:
Thinking about you Leah & hoping you are home in South Yorkshire soon Xx
The campaign created a hashtag #Get1DToLeah, which is used to promote it.
Leah was at her first date with Joe Pugh, 18, when the incident occurred. The boy suffered a fractured hand.
