The family of Guys Hospital nurse Kirsty Boden say ‘As she ran towards danger in an effort to help people on the bridge Kirsty sadly lost her life. We are so proud of Kirsty’s brave actions.’

Her heroic attempt to save life ended in her murder by three terrorists on Saturday night.

She has been described by Dame Eileen Sils as ‘one in a million who always went the extra mile for the patients in her care.’

Statement released by Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust.

Kirsty was 28 years old from Loxton in South Australia.

In a statement released through the Metropolitan Police her family said:

Kirsty was loved and adored by her family, friends and boyfriend. She was the most outgoing, kind and generous person who loved to help people. Helping people was what she loved to do in her job as a nurse and in her daily life.

As she ran towards danger, in an effort to help people on the bridge, Kirsty sadly lost her life. We are so proud of Kirsty’s brave actions which demonstrate how selfless, caring and heroic she was, not only on that night, but throughout all of her life. Kirsty – we love you and we will miss you dearly.

We will not be making any further comments on this tragedy and ask everyone, especially the media, to give us the privacy we need to grieve away from the public eye.

Appeal from the Metropolitan Police for witnesses and information about Saturday’s attack.
