Coronavirus paramedic, 23, with the ‘weight of the world’ on her shoulders dies suddenly


A coronavirus paramedic, 23, with the "weight of the world" on her shoulders has died suddenly.

Charlotte Cope qualified as a paramedic just two years ago and was found dead at her home in Rhondda Valley, South Wales on Monday.

Friends today paid tribute to the young woman with one ambulance service colleague saying: "She had carried the weight of the world on her small shoulders in silence for far too long."

And the promising paramedic had shared a heartbreaking last post on social media before her death.

She wrote: "Life sucks right now ey. I miss my family.

"I miss weightlifting/training, I miss the freedom.

"But have to stay positive, dedicating all my time on the ambulance to help others in need at this time with my amazing colleagues.

"Stay safe everyone, please stay at home."

Emergency service colleagues had been called to Charlotte's home in Gelli, Rhondda, South Wales, after a 999 call on Monday.

Friend and colleague Connor Quinn described Charlotte as a "very promising and proud paramedic adored by all who knew her."

Connor wrote: "A very promising and proud South Wales paramedic adored by all who knew her, she had carried the weight of the world on her small shoulders in silence for far too long.

"Her heartwarming nature could be felt by everyone in her presence to which she was completely oblivious, this made her all the more special."
