NEW YORK – A 7-year-old girl lost her two-day battle for life, becoming the 10th victim of a devastating Bronx fire that also killed all her siblings and her mother. Asimi Soumare died late Friday as the bodies of other victims were being prepared for their funerals Monday: Asimi’s twin baby sisters, 4-year-old brother and mother, as well as five of the girl’s cousins – children of Manthia and Moussa Magassa, who shared the three-story brick home with the Soumare family. Mamadou Soumare, a taxi driver who received a frantic call from his doomed wife on the night of the fire, has now lost his spouse and all of their children. “I don’t know what I’m going to do,” Soumare said hours after the death of 42-year-old Fatoumata, 4-year-old Djibril and the 7-month-old twins. last_img
