A grieving father collapsed and died just hours after his daughter’s funeral.
23-year-old Katie Davenport of Liverpool, England, was at the Hey Amigos nightclub in Southport when she fell from the balcony at the fire exit and suffered severe brain injuries.
13 days after the incident during a night out, the young woman succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.
As an inquest heard, the family held a funeral for the “funniest girl with the most infectious laugh” on October 14, a month after her premature death.
Just hours after the emotional funeral, Katie’s father suffered a fatal epileptic fit and passed away.
“I can’t even begin to describe the pain and heartache we have gone through since losing our beautiful Katie. She was the most beautiful, funniest girl with the most infectious laugh,” Katie’s sister, Lianne Clegg, expressed in a statement.
“Katie had struggled with her mental health over the years but reached out for help and along with the help and support of her partner Niall had got to a place in her life where she was confident, outgoing and loving life.
“She had recently passed her driving test, saving up for a mortgage, booked a holiday and got a second job in healthcare – a job she adored doing. She worked extremely hard she was motivated and determined to save as much money as she could to live a happy and comfortable life.”
The heartbroken sister went on to say that the recent events have had a “devastating impact” on her family and that losing both her sister and dad was a most painful experience.
Lianne also revealed that she received a Snapchat from her sibling just 20 minutes before the incident and that her sister appeared to be “happy, dancing and laughing on the dancefloor.”
Our thoughts are with Katie’s family and friends during this challenging time.
