Aoife Mcmanus, a “dedicated” student at the University of Brighton, died at the city’s Royal Sussex County Hospital on June 12.
The 23-year-old had been found hanging and unconscious in her bedroom by her mother Lyn in the early hours of June 4.
What was she studying? Glad you asked. To be....wait for it...a paramedic!
While Aoife had a history of depression and anxiety, Coroner Alicia Keen recorded a conclusion of death by misadventure
A statement from Margaret Mckeon, advanced nurse practitioner at Bird in Eye Surgery in Uckfield, said Aoife was diagnosed with depression in 2015 and had self-harmed.
In 2019, she reported having “dark thoughts” and contemplated driving to Beachy Head after the break-up of a five-year relationship.
An airheaded selfie-obsessed teen with mental issues. Just the sort of person you want turning up to an incident... but back to that coroner:
In her conclusion, Coroner Keen said she did not see anything that led her to believe Aoife intended to take her own life, although it was a likely outcome of her actions.
She said: “Aoife said she didn’t want to take her own life and she had too much to live for and that describes someone who was able to recognise the way ahead.”
I don't know how someone can be so wilfully blind to reality. Do they teach it at coroner school?
