The Singleton couple travelled to Thailand in late May. While enjoying drinks at a hotel bar in Khao Lak, Ms Enwright tripped down some stairs and hit her head. 

Mr Enwright relied on a fundraiser, which raised almost $220,000, to take his wife home after three weeks in Bangkok Hospital in Phuket.

Ms Enwright was placed in a hospital bed in the back of a Boeing 777 and was transferred to the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle.

The couple’s travel insurance, Cover-More, excluded incidents involving alcohol. 

Yesterday, Mr Enwright said his wife suffered a second brain bleed on Sunday morning that was “catastrophic” and “insurvivable”.

“It is with the greatest sadness and heaviest heart that I would like to inform you all of the sudden passing of Kylee,” said in the Facebook post.

“Kylee passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones.”

Mr Enwright said Kylee’s organs would be donated.

“Thanks to Kylee’s selflessness and generosity, through organ donation, there will be up to eight people that will receive a second chance at life, and her spirit will live on a while longer through them,” said the post.

“Kylee Enwright is survived by her husband Paul, her three children Harrison, Jacinda and Slade, her grandchildren Aurora and Leo as well her “children-in-Law Ellie and Xander”.

Mr Enwright said his wife was “one of the kindest, most generous people” he knew.

“Kylee, Rest in Peace, my darling, until we meet again.”
