The parents of Jemima Prees described how their daughter was "wise beyond her years" and a ray of sunshine in their lives
The Prees family were on the last ski run of the day in Innsbruck when Jemima careered into woodland and was knocked unconscious. Her father and her brother Barnaby both witnessed the accident on February 10.
Recalling the incident, Tim Prees described how Barnaby spent 40 minutes trying to revive his sister, despite the fact she was "fairly clearly dead". His actions drew praise from emergency services who arrived at the scene.
The family of a British schoolgirl who died in a skiing accident in the Austrian Alps have spoken of how she "lived every day as if it might be her last".
Mourners will gather for the funeral today of 10-year-old Jemima Prees, who was killed when she hit a tree at high speed on February 10 while on a half-term holiday with her family.
In an interview with ITV, Karen Prees said: "She was lovely, she was gorgeous, she was very active. She loved life. She lived every day as if it might be her last.
"Sometimes she used to say 'today might be the last day, we must all tell each other that we love each other because we may not come back this evening'. She was very wise, wise beyond her years. She had things sewn up that some people never seem to grasp."
