Death of Tamworth teacher Fallan Kurek, 21, WAS linked to contraceptive pill, says coroner


A young Tamworth teaching assistant died of a massive pulmonary embolism on her lung caused by taking the contraceptive pill, an inquest has heard.

Fallan Kurek was rushed to Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield on May 11 last year after she stopped breathing and suffered two cardiac arrests.

Her loving parents Julia and Brian had called an ambulance after the 21-year-old collapsed at home.


So sad - and most likely her death will not make a dent in the use of birth control pills.
May Our Lord comfort her family and may she rest in His Mercy.
