Mum collapsed and died watching England penalty shootout with her family
A young mother died from a fatal seizure she suffered while cheering on England in the World Cup with her family, an inquest has heard.
Rosina Warburton, 34, was watching the game against Colombia on TV when she collapsed on top of a neighbours baby.
She had a brain aneurysm during the penalty shootout and was taken to hospital, where she died two days later.
An inquest heard Miss Warburton, a care assistant with a four-year-old son, was enjoying a day at home in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, with friends and family on July 3.
Neighbour Robert Morley told the hearing how he found Rosina collapsed on top of his son.
He said he moved him out of instinct and his partner and Rosinas mother Cecilia tried to wake her up, but she wasnt responding.
Her lip started to go blue and I tried to listen to her breathing, he said.
I rang for an ambulance and I felt like it took forever to get through to someone to give direction. The call duration was about 15 minutes. It seemed about seven minutes to get through.
I did CPR until the ambulance arrived.
Cecilia said: She was taken to hospital but we were told that she had a bleed on the brain.
We had been drinking cocktails but she wasnt very drunk. She could control her movements and had not taken anything illicit.
She said Rosina had been to her childs taster day at school, and was happy and looking forward to life.
The hearing was told Rosina had high blood pressure and suffered with migraines in the run up to her death.
Ambulance spokeswoman Angela Lee said: The 999 call came in at 22:05. It was just short of two minutes to get through to the emergency call handler.
It should be answered within five seconds but on this particular evening it was extremely busy due to the football match going on. The emergency calls were queueing for the evening.
Dr Stanley Ferns told the inquest: She had a cardiac arrest and was deeply comatose having suffered with a haemorrhage and aneurysm.
The neurosurgeons were consulted and they informed us that there was nothing they could do. They couldnt operate due to the extent of the bleed, despite her young age, it was quite catastrophic.
Coroner Lisa Hashmi recorded a verdict of death by natural causes.
