To celebrate their third wedding anniversary, Kelly and Daniel decided to go on vacation to Bulgaria. Unfortunately for them, the romantic getaway turned into “the worst nightmare”. During the trip, on Monday September 5, after one week out of the two planned abroad, the 32-year-old Briton was struck down with sepsis. The infection was fatal to him.
The YorkshireLive explains that Daniel died alone in hospital. His family members were not allowed to come to his bedside and were not informed of his death until 7 hours later.
“It’s just awful. He spent 10 days in intensive care so that he died alone without his wife, ”laments the aunt of the deceased. She adds that “Daniel lost 30 liters of blood and died. It’s awful (…) When Kelly went to see him after his death, she said they hadn’t even cleaned his face. You hear about these crazy stories in the magazines that are a nightmare, and now we are living them”.
Kelly also spoke before her husband’s death: “It was our anniversary on September 7th and I went to see Daniel in intensive care, held his hand, read him his birthday card and sang our wedding song. There are no words I can use right now to describe how I feel. It’s like the worst nightmare and I never wake up from it”.
The family now find themselves with a medical bill of almost 39,000 euros after their insurance company refuses to help them.
