A top doctor in Australia says her life is "shattered" after her only daughter died unexpectedly in her sleep.
Australian Medical Association South Australia president Michelle Atchison posted the sad news on Twitter, that her 26-year-old daughter Caillin had died on Wednesday.
"The light in our life has gone out. My beautiful and only daughter died yesterday," Dr Atchison wrote on Thursday.
"She never woke up. It was so utterly unexpected and my husband and my hearts are shattered. I really don't know what to do."
Dr Atchinson came to prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic during which she became a spokesperson for nurses and hospital staff.
She also warned South Australia opening its borders in November would put a strain on the healthcare system.
The tweet went viral with hundreds of people offering their condolences.
