Retired Susan Al-Kaissy died from injuries she suffered in a motorcycle accident just over six decades ago.
An investigation found that the 83-year-old was just 19 when she was a passenger in a crashed motorcycle. This left her quadriplegic for the rest of her life.
Susan, of Faversham Road, Burton, died in Burton’s Queen’s Hospital, on April 27 of this year, following a cardiopulmonary arrest.
StaffordshireLive reported that an investigation had been carried out into his death by Andrew Haigh, Coroner of South Staffordshire, who ruled his death was caused by a “ road collision ” – which occurred in 1957.
The incident, which the investigation had no further details on, had left her quadriplegic. The condition, also known as quadriplegia, refers to paralysis of the upper and lower body. This means that it affects both arms and both legs. This type of paralysis is usually caused by damage to the spinal cord or the brain. Quadriplegia is one of the most serious forms of paralysis.
Despite police investigations, Mr Haigh said no further details of his decades-old accident could be found.
He told the inquest: “This is an unusual case. She had quadriplegia caused by a road collision.
“What is unusual is when she died, she was 83 years old, but she suffered these injuries when she was between 19 and 64 years old, which means she received very good care during this time. period.
“Investigations have been done about this collision, but what we do know is that she was a passenger on a motorcycle.”
Mr Haigh gave his cause of death as cardiopulmonary arrest, cerebral hemorrhage, quadriplegia and type 2 diabetes.
He recorded a verdict that Ms. Al-Kaissy’s death was due to a “ road collision ”.
