The When Calls The Heart actress’s family has revealed that her recent fall from the five-story balcony was unintentional.

Mamie Laverock, who plays Rosaleen Sullivan in When Calls The Heart, was first admitted to the hospital on May 11 to treat an undisclosed medical issue. She was then transferred to St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, where her family believed she would only stay for around one month.

Unfortunately, on May 26, Mamie was taken from a “secure unit” of the hospital to a balcony walkway, where she fell from five stories, leading to her placement on life support as a result of her life-threatening injuries.

Just over one week after Mamie was put on life support, her mother, Nicole, shared hopeful news on a GoFundMe page about her health journey.

While she didn’t dive into specifics surrounding her injuries, she revealed that Mamie was “doing well” and had finally completed surgery.

“We can only hold onto the miracles of each day and continue to thank everyone for their prayers and marvel at the miracles of her story. Our daughter loves her life and loves her family and is fighting hard everyday.”

Shortly after, during a phone interview with LA Times, Nicole revealed that Mamie had opened her eyes, hoping for a turnaround in her recovery. Nicole also shared with the outlet that the family plans to take action, calling the situation a “negligence-type case.”

“This is an absolute miracle and there will be accountability.”

Nicole clarified that Mamie’s fall was “not intended” and was not a suicide attempt, and the family intends to pursue legal action against St. Paul’s.

“We have a case. All we care about is that Mamie can make a recovery and that she’s alive and that she’s fighting and that she’s strong. It’s unbelievable that she’s with us,” Nicole shared.

A representative for Providence Health Care, the operator of St. Paul’s Hospital, verified that “an incident occured” at the hospital but refrained from providing details due to patient privacy.

The spokesperson said, “In cases related to patient safety, an internal critical incident review is conducted to determine exactly what happened and to make recommendations for improved patient safety. Our hearts go out to the patient, family, and all affected by this event, and we offer our best wishes for a full recovery.”

We sincerely hope for a positive outcome and a swift recovery for Mamie. She remains in our thoughts and prayers.
