I was saddened to read about the death of a 26 year old woman following what was thought to be a minor injury while horse riding in Turkey.
Charity fundraiser Louise Carolan fell off a horse in Turkey and hurt her knee. She was told by doctors that she had simply torn some ligaments. However, after she came home she collapsed while shopping with a friend. She was transferred to the Western General in Glasgow where the doctors found a blood clot on her lung, induced by the fall, and this caused a cardiac arrest.
After 72 hours with no response from Louise the doctors carried out a brain scan and discovered that there was nothing further they could do for her. Louise passed away on September 9th.
