had free tickets
at The Station,
said. So the 25-year-old Coventry
went with her uncle, Richard
Sanetti, and his wife, Patricia, to
hear some heavy metal music.
"She was a very beautiful person,
very happy-go-lucky," said
Christine Rice of Coventry, a
neighbor and close family friend.
She could frequently be seen in
the neighborhood, where she
had lived with her aunt and uncle
for five years, walking the
family pet, a dog named Daisy.
When the weather was warm —
and she wasn't at her job as a career
counselor at the Hillside Alternative
Program in Woonsocket
— Sanetti loved
swimming in the family pool.
Rice, a nurses' aide at Kent
County Memorial Hospital who
was on duty Thursday night,
said she learned later that Bridget
Sanetti had gone to the bathroom
in the nightclub just as the
concert started. As the pyrotechnics
exploded and concertgoers
stampeded toward an exit, Rice
said, Richard Sanetti tried to
find his niece. "He pulled a few
people out of the club," said Tom
Sanetti, Richard's brother, who
flew in from Huntington, Calif.
Patricia escaped unharmed, Tom
Sanetti said. But Richard never
found Bridget and was finally
driven back by the flames.
