South Australia covid: Hayley Beadman, 24, dies of covid after chest pain

A young Australian woman has tragically died after being struck down with Covid a day after a holiday in Bali.

Hayley Beadman, from Aldinga in South Australia, died in an Adelaide hospital on Tuesday after suffering cardiac arrest induced by myocarditis.

The 24-year-old and her partner Ben Moore tested positive for Covid on November 23 after returning from holiday.

Less than 24 hours later, Hayley began experiencing chest pains and an ambulance was called and she was taken to hospital to further investigate her symptoms.

While in hospital, her heart stopped and hospital staff performed CPR on Hayley for 50 minutes.

What followed was an induced coma from which Hayley’s family said she had finally awoken, and the young woman was thought to have been on the road to recovery in recent weeks.

Doctors went so far as to call her “the sickest woman in Adelaide” during the brave fight.

“She is awake now. She blinks on demand and her eyes move around the room looking at everyone,” read a GoFundMe for Hayley.

However, in a tragic twist, Hayley lost her month-long battle with myocarditis, a condition that causes the heart to swell, this week.

Friend Moni Burrell, who had started a GoFundMe on Hayley’s behalf, said her loss has been profound.

“Good girl, you left a hole in all our hearts,” she wrote on Facebook.

“Sometimes it’s hard for me to be my weirdo around others. but you allowed it from the start and turned up the volume on my weirdness.

“Thank you for being you and thank you for loving me for me.”

Hayley and Ben have been together for five years and recently bought their first home together in Aldinga, south of Adelaide.
