On December 26, 2013, three-year-old Georgia Fieldsend collapsed in her mother’s arms on a beach during a family trip to Egypt.
Early the next morning, after being rushed to a local hospital and then airlifted to King’s College Hospital in London, little Georgia was pronounced dead.
Blonde, lively and loving, an aneurysm had ruptured in the three-year-old’s brain.
After donating their daughter's liver, kidney, heart valves and eyes, Georgia's parents, Ilse and James, made the unusual decision to bring their daughter's body home until her funeral, scheduled for 11 days after her death.
Speaking to UK's The Telegraph on what would have been Georgia's seventh birthday, 42-year-old Ilse revealed she instinctively felt their "daughter's body belonged with us, not in a morgue".
"I know some will think what we did was shocking, but to us it made sense," she explained.
"Having her at home helped us grieve.
"It still hadn't sunk in that she was gone. I simply wanted to bring Georgia home where she belonged."
On New Year's Day, the family signed a transfer of care form at the hospital, and a funeral car transported Georgia's body to her family home in Bramley in a portable hospital bed.
Funeral directors told Ilse and James their home needed to be freezing in order to protect their little girl's body from deteriorating.
"I was worried I was doing something dangerous or unhealthy but it was winter, and with her bedroom door shut and her window kept open, they said she would be fine," Ilse said.
