Girls died after mother hit head
Friday 03 September 1999
Miss Brownsea, 21, told the inquest in Winchester, Hampshire, that she slipped and hit her head on the side of the bath as her daughters laughed and blew kisses at each other. The 21-year-old wept as she said she awoke to find both girls still and quiet in the water. "I think I reached forward to look over the bath to see the far side. I think I slipped on the floor. I think I hit [my head] on the edge of the bath."
The coroner, Mr Grahame Short, recorded verdicts of accidental death, and told her: "You did everything to look after them and you did your best."
