Attack survivor dies in train crash
A girl who survived a criminal attack that shocked South Africa was among those killed when a train hit a school van this week, a family spokesman said.
Liesel Augis was only six years old when she was raped, beaten unconscious with a brick and thrown into a fire by a family friend in 2006.
She survived and became known as "Little Rock" for her resilience.
On Wednesday, Liesel's bus driver went around a closed rail crossing gate and the van was hit by a train. Nine children died at the scene in Cape Town, and a 10th died later.
Only the driver and four children survived.
Family spokesman Malvern de Bruyn said Liesel had a zest for life, and the accident had left a deep scar in the family and the nation.
Police are investigating a case of homicide against the van driver.
