Mother-of-three Melissa Kinsella who collapsed on holiday in Turkey ‘is clinically dead’ says family
Mother of Melissa Kinsella, who collapsed whilst on holiday with her partner and three children, says she is ‘clinically dead’
Melissa Kinsella, from Wirral, was on holiday in Turkey with her partner and three children when she suddenly collapsed at the airport after suffering a seizure that caused her heart to stop.
The 30-year-old was then rushed to hospital where she was put on a ventilator. She was flown home via air ambulance earlier in the week after her family were told she had swelling on her brain and heart.
In a Facebook post, her mother Michelle wrote: "Our hearts are broken forever after 12 days of fighting for our beautiful daughter’s life test to prove she is clinically dead. We have no words to express how we feel but thank everyone who helped us in any way to bring her home."
Over 1000 people have commented on her mother’s post. One person said: “I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. Hope you are okay, love”, whilst another said: “My heart is breaking for you. Absolutely devastating. Much love to you all.”
Melissa’s mother also said: “Can’t believe our beautiful girl is a donor and is going down to surgery to donate her organs. She had made choices of everything she wanted to donate. We’re finding it so hard to get our head around this but how beautiful was her heart to do this”.
