A MUM has relived the heartbreaking moment her daughter called her panicked she was going to die – before suffering five heart attacks.
Jodie McCann, 22, phoned her mum, Sloane, from hospital to say she thought she was having a heart attack.
The next day she was found facedown in her bed after having had a "cardiac event".
She was rushed to ICU, and was put on a ventilator and dialysis machine.
Days later she had another four heart attacks and tragically died.
The young mum had gone into hospital with pancreatitis, but had been healthy beforehand, Sloane said.

She told the Manchester Evening News: "Jodie had been in hospital for two days before everything started going downhill.
"She called me and said 'Mum, I think I'm having a heart attack. I'm going to die. I told her to press the button and call for the nurse.
"The next day, I got a phone call from the hospital staff to say that she'd been found facedown in her bed, unresponsive after a cardiac event.
"You don't expect your daughter to pass away after going into hospital for pancreatitis. She was healthy and used to walk everywhere.
"She was too young. Her little boy is only four-years-old. She had so many things to look forward to."
Jodie, mum to little Freddie, had signed up to train as a nurse when she became ill.
She was admitted to hospital with acute pancreatitis, and had been keeping her mum updated when she feared she was having a heart attack.
Two weeks later, the young mum had tragically died, leaving her mum heartbroken.
A fundraiser has been set up by Jodie's close friend, Skye, to hep her family cover the funeral costs and for a gift for little Freddie.
Acute pancreatitis symptoms include:
- feeling or being sick (vomiting)
- a high temperature of 38C or more (fever)
- yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
- tenderness or swelling of the tummy
- fast heartbeat (tachycardia)

While it is not clear what exactly happened to Jodie, pancreatitis can cause cardiac complications in some cases.
Severe acute pancreatitis can cause hypovolemic shock, which is when blood and fluid leaves the heart, leaving it unable to pump enough blood to the body and depriving it of oxygen.
