Gerry McCann placed both knees on the floor, hit the floor with both hands, too, placing himself like a praying arab, and shouted out twice in rage
"After the search, he noticed a situation that seemed atypical to him, when at a given moment, the girl’s parents kneeled down on the floor of their bedroom and placed their heads on the bed, crying. Link to image 1
He did not notice any comments or expression from them, just crying. He stressed that at the main reception the father also knelt down, placing his head on the floor and crying. Also no comments were produced. Link to image 2
He never heard them ask to see a member of the clergy. (…)
He also stated that in the apartment were two children, in the same number of cribs, placed in Madeleine’s bedroom, transversely to the beds existing there. The children never woke up, being in the ventral decubitus [belly down] position, not even moved after and before the search.
Concerning the parents, he refers that they were nervous and anxious however he did not see any tears from either of them, although they produced sounds identical to crying. He advances that he did not feel that this was a kidnapping, although this was the line indicated by the father.
He also refers a situation, at the time of the exterior search, near the pool, where someone from the Ocean Club that he couldn’t identify, gave him a cell phone because a British Consulate employee wanted to talk with the authorities. Speaking with him, the employee told him that the investigation and all the subsequent actions were in the hands of the Judiciary Police."

“When she arrived near the GNR officers, she verified that Gerry, Madeleine’s father, was behind her, in the company of another individual whose identity she doesn’t remember. At that moment, Gerry placed both knees on the floor, hit the floor with both hands, too, placing himself like a praying arab, and shouted out twice in rage, and it was not possible to understand what he said. Then Gerry got back on his feet and accompanied the deponent and the other individual who was in the GNR car, to apartment 5A."
