Canadian woman killed by ISIS in London dies in her fiance's arms

A Canadian woman killed in the latest London attack died in her fiance's arms after being struck by a speeding van as terrorists again brought havoc to the capital.

She is the first named victim of the atrocity in London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night, which killed seven people and critically injured 21 others.

Cassie Ferguson Rowe said her brother, Tyler Ferguson, held Ms Archibald, from British Columbia, and she died in his arms.

“In a split second his entire life was ripped away from him. Hearing his painful sobs on the phone while he's alone trying to deal with this tears me apart.
