Jayne Carpenter, a 53-year-old nurse who lost both of her legs and one of her arms due to sepsis, a severe complication from infection, was found hanged by her husband.

Four years ago, while suffering a common cough, Carpenter was left with just one limb after developing sepsis.

A witness heard Jayne’s husband, 56-year-old Rob, get a call from Jayne on December 7 asking him to pick up their dog.

He arrived at their Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales home around 4.30 pm, where he found a jumper obscuring a window pane at the front door.

Rob went inside, where he discovered his wife hanged on the stairs.

Rob paid tribute to his late wife on social media, writing “The brightest star in my sky has burnt out.”

Jayne was a very active person. After her surgery, she said her independence had been “stripped from me overnight.”

Jayne had been admitted to the ICU in May 2016 when her cough developed into sepsis – which kills more than 30,000 people in the UK every year.

She was in a coma for 9 weeks. Rob was told she would need multiple amputations in order to survive.

The couple hoped she would be able to have osseointegration surgery – where artificial limbs are attached to a patient’s bone.

However, doctors thought she might not have enough bone left for that operation to be successful.

In September of 2019, Jayne spoke out on World Sepsis Day, trying to raise awareness for the deadly condition.

Jayne said her life was turned upside down, and she told her husband that he could leave her if he wanted to.

Jayne said the last three years of recovery brought huge challenges to her and coming to terms with her new lifestyle was very hard.

She said at the time, “We try to live life as normally as possible but life is not always the same as before. I divide my life into two parts; before and after I got sepsis.”

  1. Such sad reading. It cannot be known how a person would respond to such losses. When your quality of life is disrupted how would you act?

  2. Depression is a horrible thing where you see no way out. I have had my bouts with depression in the past and found there is a way to get out of depression. First you have to find a medication that will help do you adjust the chemical in balance in your head.

    The main thing that you have to do is the simplest thing. You have to do what you don’t want to do while you’re depressed. If you can train your mind to have the willpower to not be selfish because you’re depressed and do what you don’t want to do that’s the first step to recovery.

    I started a channel called isolation kills on YouTube to help people get out of depression. I haven’t done anything to promote it. Because of finances but I do know for a fact that small YouTube channel has save for lives and it makes it all worthwhile.
