EMILY OWEN, 19, A TEENAGE WAITRESS, DIED IN HOSPITAL AFTER AN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AS SHE WAS SCARED OF BEING ISOLATED WITH THE CORONAVIRUS
Emily Owen, 19, from Norfolk, passed away in hospital following a suicide attempt, her family has said she was frightened of being ‘stuck inside’ in isolation with the coronavirus.

A 'beautiful' teenager who feared being isolated with coronavirus has died after attempting to take her life
Emily, who had been planning on volunteering to help others struggling to cope, died in hospital on Sunday after being found critically ill on Wednesday.

She was ‘concerned about coronavirus and mental health impacts of isolation’. Her sister said Emily was diagnosed with high-functioning autism and ‘had a daily battle to fit in and conform to social norms’.

Her devastated family have demanded more awareness and support for people struggling with mental health issues during the pandemic. Emily, from Kings Lynn, Norfolk, had warned loved ones days before the tragedy: ‘More people will die from suicide during this than the virus itself’.

The Kings Arms pub in Shouldham, Norfolk, where Emily worked, posted a tribute on its Facebook page.

 

It read: ‘We are heartbroken that we won’t see her breeze through our doors like a tornado of energy again, or hear her distinctive laugh, she was a big part of our team and we will miss her enormously.’
An online fundraising page has raised more than £2,400 in Emily’s memory. To donate in Emily’s memory, visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Emilyo
