The headstone of the little boy who died on March 28 at the Antalya Training and Research Hospital, where he was seriously injured after being hit by a truck while escaping stray dogs on March 5 in the Belek district of Serik district in Antalya, was made in the shape of a “winged angel”.
The middle of Mahra Melin’s tomb, on which a picture hung and read “You are in our hearts”, was also built in the shape of a heart and flowers were planted there. Her friends also left notes “Mahra Melin, we love you so much” and “We will never forget you” on the flowers.
The bus driver where she went to school also left the seat empty where she put flowers on Mahra Melin’s seat hanging her photographs. Her family placed their favorite toys, mask and hat on Mahra’s bed. Mother Derya, who sleeps in her daughter’s bed every night hugging her toys, and father Murat Pınar, who goes to her grave and prays every day, have started a struggle to prevent more people from being harmed by stray dogs.
As the legal process continues, some artists, especially Yeşil Salkım and Yıldız Tilbe, support the family. The Pınar family narrates their process by sharing and connecting to live streamed programs.

I had blankets laid down in case they got cold in the cold never thought they would hurt me I grew up with a cat and a dog we are an animal loving family I have also raised my children with a love of animals. Mahra was very fond of cats and dogs. “Don’t be afraid, dogs don’t do anything. I was saying. I didn’t know there was such a danger. Don’t don’t let other children get hurt.
“SOCIAL MEDIA IS VERY ENGAGED”

Explaining that she has two other children, aged 8 and 1.5, Pınar said: “I have to fight for other children for my children. They cause a lot of social media. We recorded it, we “Let’s file a criminal complaint. No one will put their children on display because of the stray dogs. Let’s spend it so they can live happily. Mahra didn’t provoke those dogs, they weren’t hungry, but they attacked.” used the expression.

Now he has become a winged angel. My Lord gave him a task, he took him with him. I fight so that children can play comfortably in safe streets so that other angels do not die. We are also looking for artists, we are in constant contact with Green Salkım and Yıldız Tilbe. They promised Mahra, they said we won’t let go until this problem is solved. made his assessment.
