A newlywed has died after a date night with his wife took a tragic turn.
Alex Hall, 37, was out for dinner in Ballarat in Victoria on February 7 when he suffered a severe allergic reaction to the barramundi he was eating.
A GoFundMe page said he received urgent medical attention but was pronounced dead five days later.
“As you can imagine the family is devastated. Alex and Cass were married last May and Cass is pregnant with their first child,” the page said.
In a devastating twist Mr Hall’s organs are being donated, including his heart that is being transported to a children’s hospital to save a young life.
“Alex will live on in his (soon to be) daughter Isabelle and in the many lives that he was able to save through his final wish,” the GoFundMe said.
Mr Hall’s wife Cassandra told The Herald Sun her husband had said how much he enjoyed the fish right after finishing the meal.
“He said he hadn’t had that type of fish in quite a few years. Then it was very sudden,” she said.
She said her husband was excited to have children and they dreamt of having four together.
“It doesn’t seem right,” she told the publication.
“He was really excited to have kids. He was just going to be the best dad.
“I am not quite sure how I am going to do it without him but I will make it happen.
“I am just going to live every day just trying to make him proud.”
The GoFundMe page has so far raised more than $20,000.
