"I had no idea who the gunmen were or why we under attack. All six of us dived down but Naomi was so scared – she just kept screaming and screaming. Her dad, Alan, was desperately trying to calm her. Shots were ringing out as the gunmen peppered the restaurant with fire. 'We have to play dead', I said".
"But as I reached up to grab Alan's neck, I suddenly felt the warm spray of blood on my face and in my hair... Naomi's screams had stopped too and I saw her lying lifeless besides him. They'd both been shot dead," Ragsdale said quoting Varagona.
Ragsdale, a mother of three, had traveled to Mumbai with members from the Synchronicity Foundation, a Virginia-based meditation group.
Six members of the group was having a dinner at the restaurant at the hotel where they were staying.
Among the group was Alan Scherr and his 13-year-old daughter Naomi.
Scherr was a university professor and worked with the Synchronicity Foundation, a spiritual organisation.
Scherr and Naomi lived in Virginia, where Naomi was a high-achieving student who was home-schooled.
The Scherrs traveled to India on a spiritual pilgrimage in November 2008 with approximately 20 other people.
They were killed while eating in the first-floor cafe of the Oberoi Hotel and four other members of their group were injured.
