Mum Found Dead
A young mum was found dead in a garden just yards from her home after collapsing.
Police said they are not treating the death of the 32-year-old as suspicious.
A neighbour found her at around 10.30am.
She collapsed two doors away from the home she shared with her husband and her 13-year-old son in Craigneuk.
A Neighbour spoke of his shock after his son found the woman, who worked as a carer, slumped in the hedge of the garden next to his.
He said: “My son and his girlfriend went outside to be picked up for work and saw our neighbour just lying there.
“She had been sick and we realised something was badly wrong. He came and got me but we couldn’t move her into the house.
“Her eyes started rolling in her head and my son’s girlfriend called an ambulance.
“We stayed with her until it came and the paramedics started working on her but then they told us she had gone. She was still in her pyjamas.
“There was a cigarette next to her when we found her.
“She was two doors down from her own house. She also had a handbag with her.
“My son's girlfriend went to her door to tell her husband but he was at work and her son answered. She told him there was an ambulance there for his mum.
“He asked how she was and she had to tell him that she’d gone, which was terrible.
Police Scotland said, “We don’t know what happened and will have to wait for the results of the post mortem.”
