Everyone fell in love with Mamie Laverock after her portrayal of Rosaleen Sullivan on the hit Hallmark series, When Calls the Heart. Mamie first got her start as an actor when she was just 9 years old in the first two seasons of the series, for which she won the Young Artists Award for best performance in a TV series in 2015. She returned to reprise her role in 2023. But in May 2024, news spread that she is facing a life-or-death situation.

Mamie was first admitted to the hospital in early May after a “medical emergency,” but now she’s on life support after a nearly fatal five-story fall. This leaves many asking what happened to Mamie Laverock and if she’ll be okay. And while some know her from WCTH, others are more familiar with her two-episode Netflix stint in A Series of Unfortunate Events. But what happened to her since?

What happened to Mamie Laverock? She fell five stories off a balcony walkway and is now on life support.

Mamie’s parents, Rob and Nicole Compton, started a GoFundMe to raise money after she went to the hospital on May 11, 2024. “On Saturday, May 11, 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 she got her to a hospital in Winnipeg. Mamie has since been transferred to hospital here in Vancouver. Her recovery is unclear at this time but she is alive and is showing signs of improvement,” they shared.

Mamie’s parents have every right to be vague about the “medical emergency” but whatever it was, fans were immediately relieved that she had been showing signs of improvement. That’s why it came as such a shock when things got immensely worse. According to Nicole and Rob, Mamie “fell five stories.”

The circumstances surrounding Mamie’s fall, however, seem inexplicable. “We are deeply saddened to report that on May 26th, Mamie, who has been in intensive treatment for the past two weeks, was escorted out of a secure unit of the hospital and taken up to a balcony walkway from which she fell five stories,” the family shared. “She sustained life-threatening injuries, has undergone multiple extensive surgeries, and is currently on life support.”

Several fans started questioning why she was on a “balcony walkway” from which she could fall in the first place, especially if she was in fragile health. Whatever the reason for her fall or whatever happened, her family, friends, and past cast members are banding together to raise money and support for Mamie.

Mamie following has received lots of support since her fall.

As of May 29, 2024, Mamie’s family has already raised 29,152 CAD, just short of their $30,000 goal. Her When Calls the Heart co-stars Erin Krakow and Johannah Newmarch both shared the campaign and news on their social media accounts. Johannah wrote, “I love this family, my heart is broken. A devastating time for all who care for Mamie. Please help if you can. They need all the support they can get to make it through this.”

Other co-stars including Andrea Brooks, Ava Grace Cooper, and Mitchell Kummen shared their hopes for Mamie’s recovery. For now, we don’t know the full details of what Mamie and her family are going through, but we can imagine that they are in an extremely difficult situation, so we are sending our thoughts and wishes for a complete recovery.
