Published in Jan 2021 / Updated in Aug 2021
A mother of two tragically fell to her death from her apartment on Christmas Day after she opened Christmas presents with her family.
51-year-old Sharon Anne Daly-O’Dwyer was living on the fourth floor of Shepherd’s Bush flat in London.
Sharon’s Tragic Death
The tragic accident took place when the mom went outside on the balcony to have a cigarette in the morning. It was an hour later after she visited her other family and close friends for Christmas Day.
Her 22-year-old daughter, Taylor Daly-Black, and 19-year-old son, Drew Daly, in addition to the barmaid’s youngsters, suddenly heard a loud bang.
They then rushed to check on the mom, before discovering that she had already hit the ground beneath.
Taylor said to The Mirror: “I got down to help her out yet it was quite clear she had kicked the bucket, she wasn’t breathing and her eyes were open.
“I held her hand when they halted the CPR and shut her eyes when they said they couldn’t do any longer. I gave her a kiss and said I love you.”
It was too late to revive the mom when paramedics arrived; they pronounced her dead at the scene.
“She was truly content with her presents,” Taylor added, implying that they had been having a normal Christmas morning.
“She said she planned to head to sleep prior to making supper yet would simply have a cigarette. We were inside for two minutes when we heard a blast,” she continued.
