A mother who was jailed for killing her four-year-old son has lost her unborn baby girl as she struggles for life in a coma in hospital.

Heidi Strbak, who was jailed for nine years for the murder of Tyrell Cobb in 2009, collapsed while pregnant in January this year at her Gold Coast home after complaining of being ill after her Covid vaccination.

She suffered catastrophic head injuries in her fall and remains in a coma.

Her unborn baby Grace tragically died Wednesday after reaching the 32-week mark, Strbak’s broken family told the Courier Mail as they fight to keep Heidi alive.

Little Tyrell died in 2009 after sustaining a blunt force trauma to his stomach.  Both his parents served four years in prison for his death, although Strbak denied having caused his injuries.

Little Tyrell died in 2009 after sustaining a blunt force trauma to his stomach. Both his parents served four years in prison for his death, although Strbak denied having caused his injuries.

After collapsing in January in the home she shared with her parents and new partner, Strbak suffered life-threatening head injuries.

Her father Jan Strbak claimed she had had a heart attack and said she was ‘a young, strong, healthy and lively mother’ who complained of feeling ill after her sting on 31 December.

Sir. Strbak also added that his daughter was going to a cardiologist just days before the fall, which has been treated as an accident.

On January 22, rescue crews were called to a property at Upper Coomera on the Gold Coast around 7:30 a.m. after reports that a woman had been ‘seriously injured’.

Heidi Strbak, 38, was jailed for nine years for the murder of little Tyrell Cobb (pictured together), but was released after serving just over three years of the original sentence.

Sir. Strbak has described how the family has since applied for alternative medicine in a desperate attempt to save Heidi.

A request that she be given a traditional Chinese medicine was rejected because it was not approved for use in Australian hospitals.

Similarly, a request for a Mannatech Ambrose Complex Powder supplement, a product known to increase brain activity, was rejected for the same reason.

Strbak said the family now wants CBD cannabis oil to be given to his daughter.

That request has not yet been decided.

Sir. Strbak wrote to the Gold Coast Health CEO urging authorities to allow the use of alternative medicine, describing the family’s determination to help his daughter and unborn granddaughter before her death.

“We know how strong our daughter was and we were willing to take care of her and her child’s possible disability,” his letter said.

Strbak was released from prison in 2020 after her time was reduced after appealing the nine-year sentence in the High Court.

The mother had spent 1,148 days behind bars.

Tyrell died after Strbak and her then de facto husband Matthew Scown failed to seek timely medical treatment for the sick boy.

He had vomited after a blow to his abdomen, which tore up his small intestine.

Strbak pleaded guilty to the charge of manslaughter on the grounds that she did not seek medical attention.

A Supreme Court judge ruled that the prosecution had not proved that Strbak was responsible for her son’s injuries.

At the top of her Facebook profile it says’ You know my name, not my story. You have heard what I have allegedly done, but not what I have been through. ‘

Scown was sentenced in 2017 to four years behind bars for Tyrell’s manslaughter, but was immediately released after serving more than two years in custody.

He was convicted of being criminally negligent and failing to seek medical attention for the boy.
