Aussie woman, 24, dies after getting Covid on Bali trip
Less than 24 hours after arriving home from her holiday, her partner was forced to call an ambulance.
A 24-year-old South Australian woman has tragically died from Covid complications after returning from a holiday in Bali with her partner.
Aldinga local Hayley Beadman passed away at an Adelaide hospital on Tuesday when going into a myocarditis-induced cardiac arrest, after a month-long battle with the virus, the Adelaide Advertiser reports.
Hayley and her partner Ben had arrived in Bali on November 23 and less than 24 hours after arriving back home, she started experiencing chest pains and "felt horrible", a GoFundMe explained.
"Ben called the ambulance where they took her to hospital for further investigating. While in hospital her heart stopped, the hospital staff performed CPR on Hayley for 50 minutes," it said.
Family thought she was getting better
After being put in an induced-coma and being on antibiotics as well as having surgery on her right foot, the family believed she was "slowly coming back" however the affects of the myocarditis – a condition that causes the heart to be inflamed – were too strong, with medics even calling her “the sickest woman in Adelaide”.
The young woman is described as "extremely warm, kind, intelligent, a ball of fun" as well as "one in a million".
"I don’t think she realises how beautiful and rare she is," the description of her in the GoFundMe continued.
According to the fundraiser, Ben and Hayley had been together for five years and recently bought a house together in Aldinga.
Tributes flow for young woman gone too soon

“Beautiful girl, you have left a hole in all of our hearts,” she said on Facebook. “I find it hard at times to be my weird silly self around others.. but you allowed it from the start and turned my weirdness volume right up. Thank you for being you and thank you for loving me for me.”
Another friend, Hayley Elford, said she was "still in shock". "You didn’t deserve any of this. You were the purest soul and the greatest friend. I’ll miss you forever," she said on Facebook.
