"I sincerely regret what happened. Finally, I was able to collect myself enough and write about what happened. In fact, I am shocked by what I've done and what others are doing to me.
I was videoing the crowd, when hundreds of migrants broke through the police cordon; a migrant rushed toward me and I was scared. I was scared as all those people rushing toward me and the survival instinct kicked in. I haven't seen with a camera in my hand, who is rushing toward me, I just thought that I was attacked and I had to protect myself. It's hard to make good decision at a time when we are in panic situation when hundreds of people rushing toward us. At that moment, I failed. I'm sorry about what happened and as a mother, I especially regret that it was a kid who came into my way, who then, I didn't notice. I panicked and when I see myself in the video footage, it seems that woman wasn't me. I sincerely regret what I've done and I take full responsibility for it.
I'm not a heartless, racist camerawoman who likes hurting kids. I do not deserve the political witch hunt, the smear campaign and the death threats that issued against me. I'm just a woman, and now, an unemployed mother of a small kid, who brought a bad decision in a panic situation. I am truly sorry.”

This video shows that the man carrying the small kid fell as he tried to free himself from the officer’s grasp. The camerawoman didn't touch him, although the intention was there.
