Woman Collapses And Dies Moments After Hearing Court Ruling


Hayley Gascoigne a young mother of four collapsed and died moments after hearing a court ruling in Hull.

She was reportedly had a seizure and suffered a cardiac arrest in front of her parents and could not be resuscitated.

The 32-year-old took her seat at the family court hearing after visiting the toilet and soon turned pale and then started shaking.

A first aider ran to the scene and a barrister called the emergency services.

Her mother screamed: “Hayley. Oh My God. Call an ambulance. Please save her please.”

Members of staff at Hull Crown Court placed a series of screens around her as a man in his early 20s was accused of taking a photograph.

The man was ordered by others at the scene to delete the image.

Ms Gascoigne was put onto a trolley and taken to Hull Royal Infirmary, where she was later confirmed dead.

Details of the ruling have not been revealed.

Her father said the “stress” of the trial played a role in his daughter’s death.

“My daughter died in my other daughter’s arms. She died because of the stress,” Mr Gascoigne said,

Police have launched an investigation after allegations from a relative that she may have “taken something” in the toilet before becoming ill.
