Sister of ER doctor who died by suicide: She ‘couldn’t help enough people’


Dr. Lorna Breen, who oversaw the ER at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital even after contracting COVID-19 herself, died by suicide earlier this week. Her sister and brother-in-law, Jennifer and Corey Feist, spoke with TODAY. She said the hospital “was like Armageddon,” Jennifer says, but “she would not give up.” She adds, “She had COVID, and I believe it altered her brain” and “she couldn’t help enough people, and the combination was untenable.”
