Who was Natanya Brook? Voice and X-Factor contestant dies aged 23 during online gaming session

Old X factor and The voice Singer Netanya Brook died unexpectedly while gaming online late at night. The semi-professional player died while playing at her home in Aylesford, Kent. The 23-year-old reportedly stayed up until 2 a.m. playing an online game with vodka and coke on the side.

Netanya Brook’s mother, Jenny, checked on her the next morning and found her lying against the bed. She assumed her daughter was sleeping. However, she returned to Netanya’s room a few hours later while in the same position. Her mother found this suspicious and attempted CPR.

Emergency services were then called. Unfortunately, she was pronounced dead at the scene.


How did Netanya Brook die?

The player had a history of seizures. She also suffered from epilepsy when she was only six years old. The daily mail reported that Netanya Brook would lose her train of thought, causing her mother to save her from harm on several occasions.

Dr. Deirdre McKenna performed a post-mortem examination on the deceased artist. She found no abnormalities in Brook’s major organs. McKenna could not find the exact reason for his death. It was concluded that she probably died of natural causes in relation to her past epilepsy problems.

Jenny Brook mentioned that Netanya’s friends she played with remembered her saying before she shut up:

” Oh. I feel…”

Speaking of Netanya’s death, her mother said:

“She changed people’s lives, whether it was encouraging them to sing or making them smile. She just had this ability to attract people to her. I don’t think she could have done anything else in 23 years.

She added:

“It’s as if a switch had gone off. It brings me some peace because I know she wasn’t in pain like they would have heard. I still have a gaping hole inside of me and I miss her because she was such an incredible light in my life.

The mother mentioned that they always told Netanya that her epilepsy was just a diagnosis and “not an excuse to do nothing.”

Netanya is survived by her parents Jenny and Leslie, her brother Emmett and her grandmother.
