Toddler Trampled to Death amid Kabul Airport Chaos
British military officials revealed the deaths on Sunday
The chaos surrounding Kabul airport saw a toddler and six others killed on Saturday, bringing the total death toll over a dozen, despite Joe Biden's claims last week that no one is dying.
British military officials revealed the deaths on Sunday and sent their “sincere thoughts” to the families of those who “died in crowds."
The causes of deaths are still not yet known, but it is believed a daughter of a woman who worked as an interpreter for an American company was tragically crushed to death.
The woman told The New York Times:
“I felt pure terror."
She described how her family was trampled on as they attempted to reach the gate and even at one point being kicked in the head.
Her daughter was then trampled to death amid the ensuing chaos as she admitted, “I couldn’t save her.”
Meanwhile, both Americans and Afghan allies have been scrambling to reach the safety of the international airport.
The airport is currently the only way to escape the country.
Since Biden's withdrawal of American troops, the Taliban swiftly took power over the country, causing large crowds to attempt to flee in any which way they can.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Embassy warned Americans against traveling to the airport unless they are requested to do so.
But Biden, seemingly oblivious to the chaotic situation, claimed Americans weren’t struggling to reach the airport in Kabul.

During a press conference Sunday, Biden said the airport perimeter had been expanded to make evacuations easier.
“We’re working hard and as fast as we can to get people out. That’s our mission. That’s our goal,” said the president, who declined to provide details.
Last week, Neon Nettle reported Biden was demanding $2000 from every American trapped in Afghanistan to pay for their evacuation flights.
“Even though U.S. officials tell NatSec Daily and others that evacuation flights from Kabul will be free, people trying to catch a plane in the Afghan capital say differently,” Politco reported.
“One person said State Department staff were seeking large payments — up to $2,000 — from American passengers and even more from non-U.S. citizens.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed there are from “10,000 to as many as 40,000” Americans still trapped inside Afghanistan.
House Republicans blasted the Biden administration, saying it had “no plan” to help Americans get out safely.
But Afghan staff at the U.S. embassy have become “deeply disheartened” with the U.S. evacuation, NBC News reported.
“However, no one anticipated the brutal experience that occurred,” the cable that NBC News obtained said.
One staff member admitted it would be “better to die under the Taliban’s bullet” than try to enter the airport.
Donald Trump blasted Biden for leaving Americans in Afghanistan with no sound plan of rescuing them.
Trump said in a statement:
“Leaving Americans behind for death is an unforgivable dereliction of duty, which will go down in infamy."
