Missed brain injury kills bride-to-be
Different diagnosis may have saved her, fiancé says
Young couple would have been married this summer
By Mike FUNSTON, Staff Reporter
Oakville couple Karen SHANK and James CLARK were to be married on July 30, but today CLARK is mourning the death of his fiancée. The 32-year-old woman succumbed to a stroke brought on by a rare injury, which doctors failed to diagnose after a car accident.
"The accident happened almost right outside our home -- I heard the bang and ran outside -- somehow I just knew it was her," said a distraught CLARK, who was able to comfort SHANK moments after the crash.
CLARK wants to know if a different diagnosis in the emergency room at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington could have saved her life. The coroner's office is investigating.
On May 19, SHANK, program manager for the Canadian Red Cross water safety program, was returning home at 4: 38 p.m. when, according to Halton Region police, her Honda Civic was struck as she made a left turn from Neyagawa Blvd. onto River Oaks Blvd.
SHANK suffered a whiplash-type injury and took a bang on the head from the car's air bag, CLARK said.
At the hospital, head, neck and back X-rays were taken in the emergency ward, but nothing serious was detected and SHANK was sent home that same evening with Gravol for nausea, said CLARK, who said she couldn't maintain her balance and needed help walking as they left hospital.
The next day, SHANK was becoming less coherent and was taken back to Brant. Later that day, she was transferred to Hamilton General Hospital and admitted for treatment.
Three days later, on May 23, SHANK died from what an autopsy revealed was a stroke caused by an injury, police said.
CLARK was later told that two key blood vessels had been compressed, slowly choking off the blood supply to the brain and that it was a very rare type of injury. Had only one of the blood vessels been damaged, she wouldn't have died, he was told.
A memorial service for SHANK was held Wednesday in Oakville.
SHANK was to be cremated and her ashes taken to Saskatoon for a memorial service there on Monday. She was born in Moose Jaw and also lived in Burnaby, British Columbia, as well as Saskatoon.
SHANK's parents, Bill and Carol, are United Church ministers in Saskatchewan. SHANK is also survived by a brother, Brian.
"They're taking it hard, but they're fantastic people," said CLARK. " They're as solid as rocks. Their faith is helping them get through this."
Coroner Dr. David EDEN said it will be six to eight months before all the tests are complete and a decision can be made on whether to hold an inquest.
Brant hospital spokesman Ebbe MARQUARDSEN said the hospital is conducting an internal investigation.

Man fatally shot inside posh Vaughan home
By Mike FUNSTON, Staff Reporter, With files from Dana BROWN, Page B1
A man was shot inside his posh Vaughan home yesterday and later died in hospital in what police are treating as a robbery-related crime.
The victim called 911 at about 10 a.m. from the house on Cipriano Court off Vaughan Mills Rd., near Rutherford Rd.
He said he was hurt.
"He was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," said Sgt. Bruce WEST of the homicide squad. "We're treating it as a break-and-enter or home invasion-type incident."
West refused to identify the victim, saying relatives hadn't been notified. An autopsy is to be performed today. Police weren't sure how many shots had been fired or had hit the victim, who was believed to be alone at the time, West said.
One neighbour identified the home's owner as Carlo DI MATTEO, and another said a family of five, including three children, lived in the home. The family has lived there for at least five years, neighbours said.
The stylish two-storey home, with a swimming pool and stone driveway, was cordoned off as officers searched for clues.
"It's too early in the investigation to tell whether this specific house was targeted or whether this was a random act," WEST said. "Typically in a home invasion-type robbery people go there for a sole purpose."
WEST said neighbours apparently didn't see or hear anything. In the 911 call, the victim did not relay any information about the assailant.
WEST would not say if anything was taken from the home.
A neighbour said they often saw the father playing with his teen daughter and two younger sons out in the street.
York Region officers were investigating another suspicious death yesterday, but refused to rule it a homicide until an autopsy has been done. A man collapsed in the driveway of the Pinecrest Motel on Highway 7 and died later in hospital. WEST would not give details.

Victim mowed down by car
Man, 23, dies in hit-run near home
Toronto driver faces charges
By Andrew CHUNG, Staff Reporter with files from Mike FUNSTON, Page B2
Sumit KAPOOR used his friend's cellphone to call his parents Thursday evening, to say he would be home by 6: 30 p.m. But he never made it.
Twenty minutes after his scheduled arrival, police received calls about a Ford Taurus that had chased KAPOOR onto a pedestrian walkway, ran him down and drove away.
The chase, police said yesterday, followed an altercation between KAPOOR and the driver in a nearby parking lot in Thornhill, off New Westminster Dr. just north of Steeles Ave.
KAPOOR, 23, was taken to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre, where he died.
Shaun Edward PLAFKER, 20, of Toronto has been charged with second-degree murder.
At KAPOOR's home on a curved, quiet laneway in Thornhill near where he was struck down, his family remained paralyzed with shock and bewilderment.
One family member wondered through red-rimmed eyes whether it really was KAPOOR who had died. His sister, who had just flown back from Atlanta, pleaded for privacy.
The KAPOOR family moved to Canada from Calcutta, India in 1988. KAPOOR's uncle, Alan LIU, sponsored the family's immigration. KAPOOR's father is Indian while his mother is Chinese. His middle name is Weikang.
Yesterday, a steady stream of family and Friends arrived to offer their condolences.
"We are in terrible shock," LIU said, barely holding back tears.
"He must have got mixed up with some bad people. These weren't his Friends. If they were Friends, why would they just run him down?"
LIU said KAPOOR had called home to say when he would arrive, but he did not indicate he had been in a fight.
LIU described KAPOOR as a quiet young man who enjoyed hanging out with his Friends. He held a job at Swiss Chalet, but had most recently been working as a security guard, LIU said.
Police yesterday had cordoned off the south parking lot at Louis-Honore Frechette Public School on New Westminster Dr.
Across the street, the path leads onto a residential street -- Mabley Cr. A single, bluish-coloured streak runs the length of the path.
The KAPOOR household is only a couple of blocks away.
Police won't say what sparked the fight.
PLAFKER was being held for a bail hearing in Newmarket.
