A famous actress, who has been fighting for her life after surviving a deadly car crash that took the life of both of her parents, has sadly passed away. Jessica Falkholt, best known for her role in the Australian soap series "Home and Away", was in the car with her 21-year old sister and her parents when the accident occurred.
They are believed to have been traveling back to Sydney, Australia after enjoying the recent holiday. Suddenly, a car crossed the center line and hit the family head-on. Both of Jessica's parents were killed in the wreck.
Thankfully, bystanders were able to pull both of the daughters from the vehicle before it burst into flames. The driver of the other vehicle also died at the scene.
"Craig Anthony Whitall, 50, from Ulla Dulla who was driving the other car was killed on impact in the accident at the Princes Highway at Mondayong on the New South Wales south coast," according to reports.
The sisters were then airlifted to emergency facilities at two different hospitals. Family members were notified and stood watch at their bedsides, praying for God's healing and for their tragic loss.
Days later, Jessica's sister passed away. Last week, the medical staff and family took Jessica off of life support. Although she breathed independently for a few days, she finally succumbed to her injuries and passed away, joining her family in heaven.
"Falkholt’s parents died instantly in the crash but Annabelle, 21, died in the hospital three days later. Jessica underwent a few surgeries, including one to remove her kidney and a portion of her skull. However, the actress was in a coma until she was taken off life support one day following the funeral for her slain family members. Hundreds of mourners gathered in a Sydney church for the funerals of the three Falkholt family members," according to Fox News.
“On behalf of the family of Jessica Falkholt, St. George Hospital has been asked to advise the media and the community of Jessica’s passing today at 10:20 a.m.,” a statement from the hospital read. “Jessica passed away from serious injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident on December 26, 2017.”
