'Home And Away' Actress Taken Off Life Support


The production company behind Jessica Falkholt's upcoming film "Harmony" says the movie will still go ahead after the actress's life support was switched off following the Boxing Day crash that killed her family.

The driver of the other vehicle, Craig Anthony Whitall, 50, did not survive the crash.

28 year old Jessica Falkholt has been clinging to life since her family's auto collided head-on with a 4WD driven by a man we now know was on his way home from a methadone clinic.

The 29-year-old actress was involved in a Boxing Day crash while traveling with her parents and sister.

Falkholt has been in a coma since the accident, and had her life support pulled on January 11, just one day after her mother and father were laid to rest.

The 29-year-old has spent the last 16 days following the crash in a medically induced coma in hospital and has undergone multiple surgeries. "Small comfort that Jess never knew what happened to her family #RIP".

Home and Away's official Twitter page lit up after a post which read, "Rest in peace, lovely Jessica Falkholt" emerged online.

She had worked on the Australian soap, where she played Hope.

Actress Jessica Falkholt has had her life support switched off following an accident at Sussex Inlet that killed the rest of her family.

Jessica and Annabelle Falkholt were pulled from the wreckage and taken to hospital.

Vivian's younger brother Paul Ponticello thanked the members of the public who ran to help pull the sisters out from the auto.

It comes just one day after hundreds of people turned out to farewell Lars, Vivian and Annabelle in an emotional funeral in Sydney's west. He also spoke of his anger and confusion over his family members' tragic ends, saying that "their lives on this earth ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense".

'I always thought we would grow old together'.
