A family have been left heartbroken after a woman died following an asthma attack at just 25 years old. NHS clinical support worker Chloe Arnold died in the intensive care unit at Walsall Manor Hospital, where she had worked, on Thursday, March 9. A minute’s silence was held at the hospital in her memory tonight, while pink and white balloons were released by her family and friends at George Rose Park in Wolverhampton Street, Darlaston, at 6pm.

Chloe’s mum Sarah Porter told BirminghamLive: “She was just perfect, fantastic and loved by so many people. If love could have kept Chloe alive, she would have lived for eternity.

“She was my best friend. I’d give anything to have her back. She was always the life and soul of the party and the centre of attention. She loved a good party and was always on the dancefloor.”

Kate Follows, sister on the hospital’s Ward 2, said: “I knew Chloe extremely well. She was such a hard worker – if Chloe was working in a bay, you knew the patients would be safe and well looked after. She was one of the youngest members of staff but always loud and bubbly.

“On her first day she arrived looking immaculate, with perfect hair and make-up. If we went on a night out she was always glamorous, with her eyebrows and eyelashes looking amazing.”

Chloe was admitted to hospital a week before she died after a respiratory arrest following an asthma attack.

She then contracted fluid on the brain which led to a decline in her health.

She started work at Walsall Healthcare as a cadet on Ward 2, spending five years there. More recently, she joined the temporary staffing bank, working on a variety of wards.

Chloe lived in Darlaston with her mum and stepdad Mark Bradley, who performed CPR on her when she had the asthma attack.

Chloe also leaves sisters Mercedes, 22, and Ellie Mae, 10, brother Henley, 11, dad Wayne Arnold, of Willenhall, and boyfriend of nine months Jay Beech, 26.

A book of condolence has been set up on Ward 2 for staff to leave messages while a GoFundMe page has been set up to support her family.

The funeral details will be announced in due course.
