The sister of Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt has died in the horrifying car crash that killed their parents and left the star in coma.
The accident, which happened on Boxing Day, resulted in the Home and Away star, 28, and sister Annabelle, 21, being dragged from their burning vehicle by brave road users. Their parents, Lars, 69, and Vivian, 60, died at the scene of the crash, with the sisters being rushed to separate hospitals.
As Jessica continues to fight for survival on life support, the sad news of her sister’s death came on 29 December, after succumbing to her injuries early Friday morning, at Liverpool Hospital, Sydney.
A relative told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Annabelle passed away this morning, we knew what was happening so family were with her.
Her and Jessica had such a strong sister bond. They are seriously close sisters. I feel Jessica would have known her sister has passed,’ they added.
Annabelle’s boyfriend, Justin Brohier, shared a heartbreaking tribute to his late girlfriend on Facebook.
His post read:
“Today I lost the love of my life Annabelle. I’ve never met such a kind, gentle soul and this world is at such a loss without this beautiful angel.”
“The 3 years I knew her were the best years of my life. I’m so thankful for every second I got to spend with my baby.”
“I just keep hoping that I’ll wake up from this terrible nightmare and see her gorgeous eyes looking back at me.”
“She was the most amazing girl I’ve ever met, loved by everyone that came in contact with her.”
Even though I would of loved to have spent the rest of my life with her, I am happy that she is pain free and smiling down on all those who were lucky enough to have her in their lives.”
After a head-on crash with a vehicle travelling on the wrong side of the road, it’s emerged that the driver of the other car, who also died after the impact, had been previously jailed for using his car while disqualified and is believed to have been under the influence of drugs when the collision happened.
