In the aftermath of the discovery of the body of her daughter behind the school, Poly-Jeunesse, the father of Athena Gervais is trying to cash in terrible shock.
“It is standing, it is the adrenaline that keeps us”, explained Alain Gervais in an interview with TVA News.
“Apart from that, one has no energy at all. It is emptied completely. The children, the mother, is devastated.”
These are difficult times, but he says that the whole family supports to respond to the challenge.
“It’s clamp, that clamp in the heart, it is unbearable, but we must stay strong, the rest of us,” he adds. It is necessary to stay welded. It is necessary to support the whole of the world. We do not let anyone down.”
Since the beginning of the disappearance, the father and the mother were convinced that their daughter had not been away.
“Our daughter, this is not an unfortunate tendency to run away, said Mr. Gervais. We knew right from the start. We had a doubt that something had happened.”
Alain Gervais believes that it is a “stupid accident” that claimed the life of his daughter.
“It is sure that there has been behaviour before,” says the father. There has been a consumption of alcohol between friends, what friends have told us. But we never expected ever that it will go so far as that. She was left alone and she is picked up in the water, and that’s all.”
