A car crashes into groups of pedestrians on Berlin’s Ku’damm, a woman dies and many people are injured. A month later, one victim is still in the hospital. Many others need help.

A month after the death drive in downtown Berlin, a victim is still being treated in the hospital. A spokeswoman for the health administration said on request on Thursday without giving any further details.

In the alleged shooting on June 8, a woman was killed and, according to prosecutors, 32 people were injured. According to a spokesman for the judiciary, 139 people are currently registered at the central contact point, which is based at the Senate Justice Administration and is intended to coordinate the offer of help for the injured, first aiders or eyewitnesses.

Many of them were guests in the capital. According to the information, the people come from seven different federal states and two other EU countries. A school class from Hesse was particularly affected by the crime. The teacher died, and one teacher and seven students were taken to hospitals with serious injuries.

After the fact, Berlin had set up an advice line. There, those seeking help continued to receive first psychosocial support around the clock every day, the justice spokesman said. In the meantime there has also been a non-public meeting of those affected with Berlin’s Governing Mayor Franziska Giffey (SPD) and Justice Senator Lena Kreck (Left). Offers of help and specific contact persons were also presented, for example from the pension office, the accident insurance company, the Berlin crisis service or victim associations.

An individual information sheet for those affected is currently being prepared. In addition, it is a matter of referring people in Berlin or in the respective federal states so that they can receive psychosocial support.

According to the prosecutor, the 29-year-old driver is still in a psychiatric hospital. The authorities accuse the German-Armenian of murder in one case and attempted murder in 17 cases. Investigators are convinced that the man’s mental illness led to the death trip. The man had driven a car into two groups of people on Ku’damm and Tauentzienstrasse in western Berlin’s city center.
