A UK woman who survived breast cancer drowned herself in a river after losing her father to the coronavirus, according to a report.
Jane Macgregor-White, a lawyer who was in remission after being diagnosed with cancer in 2107, also was hit hard by the end of a 10-year relationship, The Sun reported about an inquest.
But she appeared to be doing all right and had also been planning a charity hike up Mount Snowdon in her father’s memory.
“She seemed to be well. She may have been a bit quieter than usual but nothing out of the ordinary,” her son Philip Bateman said. “Her death was a complete shock. I think it was the accumulation of effects.”
Bateman said her break-up and her father’s coronavirus death “was too much for her.”
He woke up to text messages from his mother’s ex-partner asking if he had seen his emails, the inquest in Woking, Surrey, heard.
Bateman then saw his mother’s suicide note.
She committed suicide by driving into a river in her hometown of Guildford while drunk in July, The Sun reported.
“We are all gutted she couldn’t come to us,” her brother Jonathan said after the inquest.
