Amy May and Her Incident
Amy May Shead, now a 30 year old woman from the UK, suffered a catastrophic allergic reaction in 2014 to a nut after consuming a single bite of food whilst in a restaurant in Budapest. After being reassured it contained no nut products; having followed her life-long, rigorous endeavour to take the necessary steps to protect herself, Amy went into anaphylactic shock and suffered a cardiac arrest on a Budapest pavement. After dying for seven minutes, Amy was revived before spending over a year in the Hungarian and English hospital systems. Amy can no longer walk, talk or see.
