Linda Lusardi breaks down as she relives when she thought she would die from coronavirus


Linda Lusardi detailed the devastating moment when she thought she would die from coronavirus after being transported to hospital, with 0% oxygen in her blood.

The former model, 61, was critical and gave up fighting for her life in intensive care, while her husband Sam Kane had a similar experience.

The two eventually tested positive for the virus, which has claimed the lives of more than 6,000 people in the UK.

Because Linda was diagnosed early in the pandemic, doctors told her there was no guarantee that she would survive because they did not know what they were dealing with.

In a heartbreaking moment, Linda collapsed, remembering the moment Sam begged her to stay alive for their children because she feared she would succumb to the disease.

Speaking of Good Morning Britain on Wednesday morning, Linda explained how the events quickly escalated leading to her desperate fight for life.

She said in tears to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: “It was absolutely horrible and I thank God that I am one of the lucky ones who have been there. “

Decomposing, she continued, “Sam and I were both in A&E and one minute we were looking at each other thinking,” Are we going to get through this? “.

“The second night, Sam was taken downstairs because he had tested positive, I was negative first.”

” I said [to the doctor], “I’m going to go through this? And he said, “I can’t promise you anything … we don’t know what we’re dealing with,” “she continued, adding that her age was putting her at risk.

She continued, “I called Sam and said, ‘You better come because I don’t know if I’m going to get there’ … sorry. “

Linda then found Sam for what she feared to be a goodbye, fearing that she would die.

She continued, “He held my hand and said,” You can’t give up, you have to think about the kids, they can’t lose their mom. “

“It helped me, it made me stronger. I was then at 30% oxygen and on the fourth day they said, “I think you are going to have to go to intensive care.” “

Linda also shared her heartache over her 20-year-old son when she saw her two parents being taken by paramedics at full speed.

Linda Lusardi “thought of her children” at her darkest time

Since arriving at the hospital, Linda has been released from her home with Sam, and she is grateful to be alive.

Her emotional reunion with her son Jack left her in tears, when she has not yet physically seen her daughter due to lockdowns.

When she got home, she said, “I sat in the garden with the sun on my face and listened to the birds. I held Jack’s hand and thought I was so happy to be here. “

Good Morning Britain is aired weekdays at 6 a.m. on ITV.
