A 15-year-old girl who died after a severe allergic reaction to a baguette from an airport Pret a Manger said “Daddy, help me” as she struggled to breathe, an inquest has heard.

Natasha Ednan-Laperouse became ill on a flight to Nice on 17 July 2016.

Despite her father administering two EpiPen injections, Natasha died in a hospital in Nice within hours, West London Coroner’s Court heard.

Pret a Manger said it was “deeply saddened” by her death.

Natasha from Fulham, west London, ate an artichoke, olive and tapenade baguette bought from a Pret shop in Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport, the inquest heard.

She suffered a cardiac arrest and died later the same day.

The inquest heard the baguette contained sesame – which Natasha was allergic to – but the ingredient was not listed on the packaging.

The family’s lawyer, Jeremy Hyam QC, became emotional as he read a statement by Natasha’s father, Nadim Ednan-Laperouse, at the first day of the inquest on Monday.

Natasha had just finished school for the summer and was on her way to Nice for a four-day “special treat” with her best friend and her father.

The inquest is expected to last five days.
