Jessica Falkholt: Home and Away actress 'has life support turned off'

Jessica Falkholt: Home and Away actress 'has life support turned off'

Annabelle died as a result of her injuries last Tuesday and on Thursday The Daily Telegraph reported Falkholt's life support had been turned off.

Falkholt's parents, Lars, 69 and Vivian, 60, were killed instantly in the Boxing Day crash.

Jessica had been fighting for life after being involved in the same horrific auto crash on Boxing Day that killed her family. Everything we have done and every decision we have made has been done with the advice of doctors and social workers.

The family is now playing a "waiting game" on the condition of the actress, with doctors telling them it could be weeks or months before her recovery time is known.

Jessica lost her entire immediate family in the crash.

Ponticello also spoke about the love between Swedish-born Lars and Italian-born Vivian, saying they were inseparable and the tragic end "makes absolutely no sense".

Witnesses said Bernstein had met up with a friend and they drove to the park, nearby his parents' home in Foothill Ranch. Bernstein, who was a student at the University of Pennsylvania and home for the holidays, was last seen at about 11 p.m.

Jessica and Anabelle's uncle Paul Ponticello told a packed funeral service at the church in Sydney's inner-west that Christmas would forever haunt their family.

"Whenever he'd ask to drive somewhere I'd suggest a time for an average driver and add on some additional time for the "Lars factor" because he was so careful". They are together and always will be.

On its website, the show said: "Goodbye attractive Jess". You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever.

The other driver involved in the crash, Craig Whitall, also passed away at the scene after reportedly driving home from a methadone clinic.

It was reported that a vehicle 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.

Whitall also lost his life in the crash.
