Home and Away star Jessica Falkholt dies one day after family's funeral

The 29-year-old actress and her family were involved in a fatal crash on Boxing Day, where her parents, Vivian and Lars, were instantly killed.

Her sister Annabelle, 21, initially survived, but died three days later in the hospital on December 29.

On the evening of Thursday, Jan. 11, just one day after a funeral had been held for Falkholt's parents and sister, her family agreed to switch off the life support.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported this morning that the hospital had confirmed the actress is still in a critical condition.

"Rest in peace, attractive Jessica Falkholt", the official account of the series posted in tribute on Twitter.

Annabelle died as a result of her injuries last Tuesday.

Australian police are still investigating the crash, which also killed 50-year-old Craig Whittall, who was driving the other vehicle involved.
