Jessica Falkholt's Life Support Has Been Reportedly Switched Off

Jessica Falkholt a former cast member of Home and Away has had her life support switched off following a car crash that claimed her family

Home and Away actor Jessica Falkholt remains in a critical condition today, a hospital spokeswoman has confirmed, weeks after a Boxing Day auto crash that killed her sister and parents. While she has undergone several surgeries, she remains in a coma.

New South Wales Police confirmed the life support machine was switched off overnight.

Her parents died at the scene of the horrific crash at Sussex Inlet, the day after Christmas, while her sister Annabelle passed away in hospital three days later.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the 29-year-old had her life support turned off one day after the funeral for her parents Lars, 69, Vivian, 60, and sister Annabelle, 21.

"Speaking about the accident, Jessica's uncle, Paul Ponticello, said: "[It's] a day that will be hard to erase from our memory", adding that Lars was known for being an excellent driver.

On Wednesday, a funeral service for Jessica's parents Lars and Vivian and sister Annabelle was held at St Mary's Catholic Church at Concord, in Sydney's west.

Vivian and Lars were instantly killed in the crash, while the sisters' bodies were pulled from the flaming wreckage of the vehicle by bystanders.




"Their lives ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense", he said.

'The irony of this tragedy is Lars was such a careful driver, ' Mr Ponticello said.

It was reported that a auto driving on the wrong side of the road caused the collision, hitting the Falkholt family head on as they made their way home to Sydney following a short festive break.

The actress, 29, who played Hope Morrison in the soap, remained in a critical condition on Friday.

Both Jessica and Annabelle were pulled from the burning wreckage and taken to hospitals.

Our thoughts go out to all their friends and family. "We take little comfort in knowing that they are together and always will be". I will always miss you. She then filmed a role in the USA film Harmony, which is set for release this year.
