Wife dies almost two months after husband following suspected gas leak in holiday villa
| Last updated
A woman has died just two months after losing her husband following a suspected gas leak.
Mary Somerville was discovered lying unconscious next to the body of her husband Jaime Carsi at a property in Cala Mesquida, Majorca, on 6 May.
While Ms Somerville was rushed for treatment at Manacor hospital, where she was said to be in a serious condition, Mr Carsi, 40, was pronounced dead.
Two weeks before the tragic incident, the pair had tied the knot at a ceremony in front of their friends and family.
Sadly, however, two months on from the shocking discovery, it's now been revealed that the 39-year-old passed away at St Columba's Hospice Care in Edinburgh on 2 July.
A funeral notice shared by D Chisholm & Sons confirmed the news, describing Ms Somerville as the 'beloved wife of the late Jaime, adored daughter of Helena and David, much-loved sister of Misha and John, also a dear sister-in-law, auntie and friend to many'.
The notice also asks for any donations in memory of Ms Somerville to be gifted to non-profit mental health group The Art of Living UK.
The authorities were alerted after the couple failed to turn up to a boating trip with some friends.
And when emergency services arrived at the rural property, they found Mr Carsi dead and Ms Somerville breathing faintly.
An autopsy of Mr Carsi, an investment management analyst, found that he had died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.
According to the Guardia Civil, it's believed that a broken fridge may have caused a gas leak, which resulted in high levels of carbon monoxide.
Ms Somerville, who used to work at Lloyds bank, was originally from Abriachan in the Scottish Highlands and taught yoga and breath work at The Art of Living Foundation in the capital city.
Following news of her death, a spokesperson for Edinburgh Interfaith Association paid tribute to her and offered their condolences to her family.
Iain Stewart, executive director of Edinburgh Interfaith Association, said: "Many people will know Mary through her role as a teacher in the Art of Living.
"I will remember Mary for her warm and infectious personality and smile that would light up any room.
"Please join me in sending prayers to Mary's family and loved ones.
"At this time as people of faith we are comforted by the belief that Mary will once again be united with her beloved Jaime."
LADbible has contacted the Guardia Civil for comment.
