“She excelled in her studies and as such secured a scholarship from University of South Wales, which brought her to the UK this March to pursue a career in nursing.

“She was an ambitious young woman, who aimed to reach great heights in life, but has now so sadly been taken away from us all,  far too soon.

“We are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported us over the last 6 weeks, from all the emergency services who attended the scene, to South Wales University and we would like to particularly acknowledge all the support from the Malayali community in Cardiff. We have felt your love and kindness during this tragic time.

“Finally, as a family we save our final heartfelt gratitude to all the staff in the Intensive Care Unit , Ward B4 at the University Hospital of Wales, who fought so hard every day to give her the best chance.

“Helna wanted to be a nurse and now we can see why she was attracted to your profession.  You are all angels here on earth and we will not forget the compassion you showed.
