Jessica Falkholt remains in critical condition: hospital

Jessica Falkholt remains in critical condition: hospital

The crash, which happened in New South Wales on 26 December, also killed her parents, sister and the other driver. Annabelle died in hospital three days later.

Last night, the Daily Telegraph revealed Jessica's extended family had chose to switch off her life support in the hope that she could be woken from her coma.

Ms Falkholt, 28, remains fighting for her life in Sydney's St George Hospital after the accident.

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.

One heartbroken fan tweeted: "RIP to Jessica Falkholt, may she Rest In Peace".

Jessica had undergone several surgeries since the crash, but remained in a coma.

Prior to her stint in Home and Away, Falkholt had minor television roles in Tricky Business and Underbelly: Badness.

"All four have now died after Jessica's life support was switched off. RIP to Jess and her family".

The family were in a devastating auto crash on Boxing Day that also claimed the life of the driver of the other vehicle, Craig Anthony Whitall.

It emerged that her young sister Raffy - actually her cousin - was a sibling of the Morgan brothers in the soap, so Raffy stayed in the Bay with them when Hope was jailed for her crimes. He had previously been subject to a nine-year driving ban and had at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified.

'It is a day that will be hard to erase from our memory, ' he said.

Ponticello also spoke about the love between his sister and brother in law, "They are together and always will be".

Family members of Vivian's family flew from Italy for the service, while a service was also held for Lars in his homeland of Sweden.

Police believe the crash occurred when a large vehicle crossed the centre line and crashed head on with the Falkholt family's auto.
