Woman Who Wasn’t There Survives Westminster Attack
Somebody else, somewhere else, on a different day.
The family of Phyllis Menhenick, 92, from Penzance, were delighted to discover that she hadn’t been killed in the attack that took place at Westminster yesterday afternoon. Four people, including the assailant, were killed when a man drove a car into pedestrians before stabbing a police officer. Phyllis Menhenick was not one of them.
The grandmother of five reportedly deleted her Facebook account last year, after a local pub landlord tagged her in a photograph where her petticoat was showing, meaning that her family had no way of knowing that she was unharmed.
“I was too afraid to pick up the phone,” said her daughter, Lois. “I feared the worst.”
But the family’s concerns were put to rest, when grandson Peter Pendarves popped into Phyllis’s West Cornwall cottage with a sticky bun, and found Phyllis snuggled up with a cup of tea and a Call the Midwife boxed set.
Since she was born 92 years ago, Phyllis has never once crossed the Tamar.
“We weren’t sure if she was in the Westminster area,” admitted Lois, “but you can’t rule anything out where terrorism is concerned.”
