Grandmother, 72, who was raped by a “refugee” after helping him out of a canal has ‘lost the will to live’

A 72-year-old woman who was raped by a teenage migrant has the ‘lost the will to live’ a few months before her attacker is due to be released from jail in Austria.

The woman is reportedly fighting for her life in the intensive care ward at her local hospital after she stopped eating and is now only being kept alive by machines.

Her daughter, who until the tragedy was a refugee aid worker, said: ‘I knew it would eventually end like this.’
