Nurse who killed herself after losing legs and arm to sepsis was found hanged by heartbroken husband - Inquest hears



A nurse who lost her legs and an arm after developing sepsis was found hanged by her heartbroken husband, an inquest heard.



Jayne Carpenter, 53, was left with just one limb after a cough turned into sepsis four years ago.



She had been fundraising to get pioneering limb surgery that is not available on the NHS and had raised over £20,000 of her £265,000 target when she died.An inquest heard that her heartbroken husband Rob, 56, got a call from his wife asking him to pick up their dog.



He arrived at their home in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, at around 4.30pm in December 2020 to find her hanged.







Robert paid tribute to his wife at the hearing, calling her an “amazing” person and added "the brightest star in my sky has burnt out."



Jayne had been desperate to lead an active lifestyle despite her medical complications, but her independence had been “stripped overnight.”
