Heartbreak as mum who collapsed at airport on holiday ruled clinically dead

A mum has been declared 'clinically dead' after suddenly collapsing at an airport ready to head home from holiday.

The parents of Melissa Kinsella whose heart stopped in Turkey have said their "hearts are broken forever" after damning medical tests showing she won't recover.

Known as Missy to her loved ones, the 30-year-old was abroad with her partner Jay Smith, his family and three children – Chloe, Beau, and Romi.

On May 15, the family from Moreton, Merseyside were set to fly back to the UK when Melissa suffered a seizure and was rushed to a local hospital.

Medics put her on a ventilator after finding swelling on her brain and heart.

The hospital charged Melissa £1,800 a day for her hospital care in intensive care, and, according to the Liverpool Echo, she couldn’t be released until the bill was paid.

A crowdfunding campaign was set up to raise the £42k required, and Missy was flown back to the UK on Wednesday May 24, via air ambulance.

But in a heartbreaking Facebook post her family have now said she will not recover.
