Charlotte Cope Death
The day before her death, a member of the public uploaded photos of Ms Cope in her Welsh Ambulance Service uniform to social media, claiming that he had seen her littering outside her home .
Ms. Cope was on her way to work on a night shift when she was pulled over and photographed standing outside her car next to a pile of food scraps and packaged food.Later, a line manager at Gelli’s ambulance station informed him of her fate, before admitting her wrongdoing and saying that she would pay any fines that were issued.
Her mother, Heidi, said in an investigation
Her mother, Heidi, said in an investigation in to her death in the Central Forensic Court of South Wales that the Facebook post “pushed her over the edge.”
Ms Cope was said to have an eating disorder and anxiety, but her mother insisted that her daughter had “everything to live for.”
She told the court that Ms Cope was a happy girl who was enthusiastic about the sport, who had become a three-time Welsh Judo champion.
Coroner Rachel Knight told the court
Her notes said that she wanted the “horrendous” and “disturbing” thoughts in her head to stop, repeatedly saying that she was sorry and thanking her colleagues for all the memories they had shared.
Coroner Rachel Knight told the court: “Charlotte had a complex history that included a long-standing eating disorder, depression and anxiety, and she was very upset by a social media post that likely embarrassed her.”
He loved his family, his work and his gym. She recently bought a car, booked to go on vacation with her friends and got tickets to a concert to see Pink live. She had everything to live for.
Charlotte had anxiety and obviously she was still struggling with her eating disorder and we supported her with that; she even built her a gym in the garage so she could keep exercising during the confinement. But I think the mail pushed her to the limit.
