Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt dies one day after funeral of parents and sister

Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt's 'life support switched off' one day after family's funeral

While the parents had died instantly, the sister died three days later in the hospital.

The driver of the other vehicle involved, 50-year-old Craig Whitall, also died instantly. He had been jailed four times, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Reports say the 28-year-old actor's life support has been turned off.
Whitall had a history of traffic offenses and spent time behind bars for driving while disqualified, according to the Australian newspaper.

Annabelle's best friend Brittany Macchetta said the 21-year-old had a passion for travel, art and Harry Potter.

He was reportedly so well known to police in the Ulladulla area for his persistent offending, officers recognised him easily when he was behind the wheel.

Jessica underwent a number of surgeries, including having one of her kidneys and part of her skull removed, but remained in a coma.

Her heartbroken family had kept a bedside vigil in the Intensive Care Unit at St George Hospital where she was in a medically induced coma.

The 29-year-old and her 21-year-old sister were pulled unconscious from the auto wreckage following the crash in New South Wales, their parents Lars and Vivian having been killed instantly.

The machine was allegedly turned off just a day after her family's funeral, which saw her mum Vivian, dad Lars and sister Annabelle laid to rest.

Their parents died at the scene, and Annabelle died as a result of her injuries on December 29.

Jessica and Anabelle's uncle Paul Ponticello told a packed funeral service at the church in Sydney's inner-west that Christmas would forever haunt their family.

"Lars adored his girls, and was never happier when he was with them", Vivian's younger brother, Paul Ponticello, said.

"(It's) a day that will be hard to erase from our memory".

In a funeral notice, Lars, Vivian and Annabelle were described as a "dearly loved and cherished father, mother and sister to Jessica". They are together and always will be.
