Andreea Cristea, 29, was pulled from the river alive after she fell into the water during the attack.

Cristea was on holiday from Romania with partner Andrei Burnaz to celebrate his birthday.

The BBC reports she was due to receive a marriage proposal the same day as the terror attack in which five people, including the terrorist, died.

The driver of the car smashed it into railings outside the Houses of Parliament before running into a courtyard and stabbing a policeman - who later died.

The couple were on the bridge at about 2.40pm when the terrorist waged his manic attack in the London tourist hotspot.

Burnaz suffered a fractured foot during the attack as the pair walked in the direction of the London Eye.

Romanian ambassador Dan Mihalache said Andreea remains unconscious in a London hospital.

He said she was "stable, but in a good direction" and added: “It's a miracle she survived. She was practically thrown into the Thames."
