Mamie Laverock, a 19-year-old actress known for her recurring role as Rosaleen Sullivan in the Hallmark Channel series When Calls the Heart, is on life support after falling five stories from a hospital balcony walkway, has learned.

Laverock had been transferred to a hospital in Vancouver after suffering a "medical emergency" in Winnipeg on May 11, where she spent two weeks in "intensive treatment." According to a GoFundMe page organized by her parents, Rob and Nicole Compton, she "was escorted out of a secure unit of the hospital and taken up to a balcony walkway from which she fell five stories" on May 26.

"She sustained life threatening injuries, has undergone multiple extensive surgeries, and is currently on life support," her family wrote. "We are all devastated, in shock, at this intensely difficult time."

The original post on GoFundMe, which was created on May 14, explained, "On Saturday May 11th, Nicole traveled to Winnipeg to help Mamie, who was having a medical emergency. Nicole was able to get there in time to save her life. Then got her to a hospital in Winnipeg."

"Mamie has since been transferred to Hospital here in Vancouver," the campaign's description read. "Her recovery is unclear at this time but she is alive and is showing signs of improvement. We are trying to go every day to support her. Any contributions would help us be by her side. But this could be upwards of a month or more."

Another of Laverock's When Calls the Heart co-stars, Erin Krakow, also encouraged her Instagram followers to donate, writing, "I just donated. If you have the means to do so, I hope you will too." As of May 28, the GoFundMe campaign has raised $16,035 CAD out of its $25,000 goal.
