Nine-year girl Mim survived the speedboat accident on Shibchar point of the Padma River but she lost all precious family members on Monday.
Hailing from Parukhali of Terokhada under Khulna, Mim along with their parents and two sisters used to live in Dhaka. Her father Monir Mia was a tailor at Mirpur.
Accompanied by family members, Monir left Dhaka for the village home to take a last look at her mother who died the previous day.
An accident between the speedboat and sand-laden bulkhead anchored in Shibchar took the lives of 26 persons including her family members on board.
Mim, who sustained minor injuries, was taken to a nearby hospital.
As the girl was taken to the field of Dotara Government Primary School displaying the bodies, she burst into tears.
Nobody in the family is left alive to console her.
Shibchar UNO Asaduzzaman rushed to the spot and sent Mim and the bodies of the deceased family members to their village home by ambulance.
