“One Life to Live” star Nathaniel Marston has died following a car accident. He was 40. The American actor passed away two weeks after sustaining injuries from the accident, his mother Elizabeth Jackson announced, reported Aceshowbiz.
“My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries,” Elizabeth wrote on Facebook.
“His injuries, which Drs did their best to heal were not responding to treatment and one after another his bodily functions failed to support his life.”
The injuries Nathaniel Marston suffered were so severe that he might never have been able to fully recover even if he could survive.
“Had Nathaniel lived he would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic,” Elizabeth explained.
“A condition that Nate would have never have been able to tolerate.”
Hence, his mother felt grateful as God took away his pain. “By Gods love and mercy(,) Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished Grandmother Mary Jackson, Grandfather John Jackson and my sister his Aunt Nora,” she continued.
Elizabeth then thanked fans for their support over the past two weeks. “Know that I am deeply grateful for all of you for taking this tragic two week journey with me Nathaniel and our family,” she wrote.
“Your unfailing support, prayers, love and positive thoughts that you have sent our way, in what has been the worst two weeks of my life, have held all of us up giving us the strength to get through each hellish day.”
She said his funeral arrangements would be held in New York City, NY, Kauai, HI and Gerlach, NV.
“As soon as dates for these services are known they will be posted,” Elizabeth added.
