‘When Calls the Heart’ actor Mamie Laverock opens her eyes after falling 5 stories, family says

Actor Mamie Laverock has been on life support after a five-story fall, but she has since opened her eyes, her family says.

The “When Calls the Heart” actor’s mom, actor Nicole Rockmann, told the Los Angeles Times that Laverock is “doing well” and hoping for a “turnaround” on her health.

“Mamie just opened her eyes,” Rockmann said. “Let’s just hope this is the turnaround and she’s going to get through this now. I couldn’t be happier that people reached out and cared. The story will be told.”

Rockmann said that her daughter’s body was “shattered” after the fall and it’s “an absolute miracle” she’s alive.

“All we care about is that Mamie can make a recovery and that she’s alive and that she’s fighting and that she’s strong,” Rockmann said. “It’s unbelievable that she’s with us.”

What happened to Mamie Laverock?

On May 11, Laverock suffered an undisclosed medical emergency and was taken to a local hospital before eventually being transferred to St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, Canada, the LA Times reports.

There, on May 26, Laverock fell five stories and was severely injured, her family said. In the actor’s GoFundMe page, the family says that on May 26, Laverock “was escorted out of a secure unit of the hospital and taken up to a balcony walkway from which she fell five stories.”

According to Rockmann, Laverock is on life support and was off a ventilator as of May 30 after undergoing several surgeries. The actor was then transferred to an undisclosed trauma receiving center and was no longer at St. Paul’s, her mother told the newspaper.

Rockmann did not elaborate on her daughter’s injuries, but blames St. Paul’s for Laverock’s fall, saying it was not “intended” and not a suicide attempt.

A spokesperson for Providence Health Care, which operates St. Paul’s Hospital, said that “an incident occurred” at the hospital. However, the spokesperson said that, “Providence Health Care cannot comment on this or any patient matters due to privacy and confidentiality policies.”

“In cases related to patient safety, an internal critical incident review is conducted to determine exactly what happened and to make recommendations for improved patient safety,” the statement read. “Our hearts go out to the patient, family, and all affected by this event, and offer our best wishes for a full recovery.”

Rockmann did not respond to TODAY.com’s request for comment on Monday.
