Numerous tributes have arrived for a student who died after being admitted to the emergency room with a suspected sinus infection.
Harvey Edwards, 19, from Bristol, was described as “genuine” and “people-loving” as his friends and family were devastated by his death on June 28.
Harvey, a Liverpool-based biochemistry student and model, was initially given antibiotics by doctors after he was admitted to the emergency room with a diagnosed sinus infection.
However, his symptoms continued to worsen and he went to the hospital again, where an MRI scan revealed he had a brain hemorrhage.
Doctors put him in an induced coma as they tried to relieve the pressure on his brain, but he suffered a stroke and was cut off life support with the approval of his family late last month.
He was a sophomore at the time of his death and had recently modeled in his first photoshoot, according to friends.
Pal Jordan Parker told the Liverpool Echo: “It was such a shock to his family, he was a fit and healthy person.”
“He was a very easygoing person and was never unhappy and always kind to everyone he met. Harvey was just one of the most genuine people ever.”
“His mom is just exhausted and doesn’t know what to do…His family was so close to him.”
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover his funeral expenses and has already raised nearly £9,000.
The description described him as “an intelligent, gentle, respectable young man with a bright future ahead of him”.
The author added, “Harvey had his sassy, charming manner and endearing, endearing personality that made his presence evident the moment he walked into a room.”
