Tragic Loss: Father of Four Dies from Undiagnosed Wasp Sting Allergy

A beloved dad from Northern Ireland died after a severe reaction to a wasp sting due to an undiagnosed allergy. His family shares their grief and advocates for allergy awareness and EpiPen use.

Bollywood Fever: A beloved father of four, Eamonn Hogan, tragically died after suffering a severe reaction to a wasp sting, an allergy he was unaware of having. Eamonn, from Kilcoo, Northern Ireland, was on a school run in his van last year when he was stung by a wasp and went into anaphylactic shock. He collapsed outside his vehicle, and his youngest daughter, Alexandra, immediately called emergency services.

Despite the prompt response from bystanders who performed CPR and the swift arrival of the Northern Ireland Air Ambulance, Eamonn passed away after spending two days in intensive care. His family has opened up about the difficult year following his death on June 13, 2023.

Speaking to Belfast Live, Eamonn’s wife Corrina expressed gratitude for having the chance to say goodbye and emphasized the importance of carrying an EpiPen for those with known allergies. “We lost Eamonn so suddenly. We are grateful that Eamonn had every possible chance and that me and our four children had a little time at hospital to be with him to say goodbye. Eamonn didn’t know that he had a wasp/bee sting allergy; we would also like to encourage anyone who has a known allergy to carry your EpiPen as this can be the difference between life and death,” she said.

In honor of Eamonn’s memory, his family has raised money for the charity that transported him to the hospital, allowing them those precious final moments together. They recently donated £1,000 to the Belfast Air Ambulance, with Corrina thanking her colleagues at the Department for Communities’ Make the Call for their support in raising the funds.

Corrina also expressed her gratitude to the bystanders who assisted her husband and the hospital ICU staff who provided emergency care. Kerry Anderson, the charity’s Head of Fundraising, extended her condolences to the Hogan family and appreciated their contribution. “It was lovely to meet with the Hogan family and our heartfelt thoughts continue to be with them, wishing them strength in their grief. We are all humbled that they have been able to think of others, giving hope to a future patient and family who need the services of Air Ambulance. It is only with continued support that the charity is able to play its part in sustaining this service, with a fundraising need of almost £7,000 every day.”

She added, “We would like to thank everyone who contributed in Eamonn’s memory for their kindness.”
