BARAN Nouri Hamadami, pictured smiling on her wedding day, has became the first confirmed victim of the Calais migrant tragedy.
Baran, 21, known as Maryam, wanted to come to Britain to join her husband, but lost contact with him as she made the perilous crossing in a blow-up dinghy.
Her body was identified by a relative in France yesterday.
Her husband, from Iraq, said: “I am in a very bad state. She is not in the UK, which means that she is gone. It is very sad for me — and for everyone.
“I had continuous contact with my wife and I was tracking her GPS. Then I lost her.”
Two teens pictured in life-jackets on a beach with a group of migrants are also feared to be among the 27 who died in the water.
Friends have been unable to contact Afghans Riaz Mohammed, 12, and his relative Share Mohammed, 17.
Riaz and Share’s friends, Palowan, 16, and Shinai, 15, are also among those who are missing.
One refugee told how two friends called him just before getting into an “overcrowded” boat. Sanger Ahmed, 33, also claimed his pals tried to back out but were forced aboard at gunpoint by smugglers.
He said: “The boat was really overcrowded, it was only a tiny thing, but the people smugglers crammed about 50 of them on there.
“These guys are brutal. No one messes with them.”
