In the days leading up to her death, the 48-year-old reportedly recounted to family members a series of traumatic scenes she’d witnessed working in the Manhattan hospital, including an onslaught of patients dying in front of her before they could even be removed from ambulances.
‘She tried to do her job, and it killed her,’ Phillip Breen told the Times. ‘She was truly in the trenches of the front line.’
The grieving 71-year-old father said Breen had no history of mental illness, but during their final conversation together he noticed his daughter seemed detached and began to suspect something might be wrong.
‘Make sure she’s praised as a hero, because she was,’ he urged. ‘She’s a casualty just as much as anyone else who has died.’
