A Belgian mother-of-two and five Argentinian men are among the victims of the New York truck terror attack on Tuesday.

Ann-Laure Decadt, 31, was killed along with seven others when Sayfullo Saipov ran them over on the cycle path of the West Side Highway in Manhattan’s Tribeca shortly after 3pm.

She was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Decadt was in the city on a trip with her mother and two sisters when she was killed. She is from the town of Roeselare in West Flanders.

Her husband Alexander Naessens told Belgium’s HLN newspaper she was cycling on the path when Saipov mowed her down from behind in his rented Home Depot truck.

‘She was a wonderful wife and the most beautiful mom of our two-month and three-year-old sons.
‘The loss is unbearable and cannot be overcome,’ he said.

She died in hospital shortly after being rushed away from the scene.

Her mother and sisters were not hurt but three other Belgian tourists were injured in the attack, according to the country’s Deputy Prime Minister.

Five Argentinian men were also killed. They are Ariel Erlij, Hernán Diego Mendoza, Diego Enrique Angelini, Alejandro Damián Pagnucco and Hernán Ferruchi.

Three other people who were killed remain unidentified. They include at least one other man who died at the scene and two others.

A sixth man in the group of Argentinians, Martin Ludovico Marro, was also hospitalized in the incident, which killed a total of eight people and injured at least 13.

Erlij, who runs a steel mill in Argentina, had paid out of his own pocket to ensure two of the members of the group could be there, local news reported.

The Argentine government confirmed Tuesday night that most of the group – all in the class of 1987 – had flown to New York for a school reunion.
