“I received the most terrifying phone call I’ve ever received in my life on Tuesday evening. My twin sister Kathryn was hit by a cement truck while crossing a road in New York on the 7th September,” Megan wrote.

“After fighting through complex surgery some of Kathryn’s injuries include: broken pelvis in two places, both of her legs, her foot and her left hand.

She is incredibly lucky to be alive. She narrowly avoided paralysis. The doctors are hopeful that she will make a full recovery but this will only be possible with the correct care right now,” she continued.

Megan has also been told that the US isn’t allowing people to visit the country from the UK, due to the current travel restrictions, hence she can’t be with her sister.

“She is alone in New York with no family members.

I need help getting to New York to support her recovery. I will have to help her until she can start to walk again,” Megan wrote.

“I know there is so much going on in the world right now but I am heartbroken that I can’t be with my twin sister in this horrible time in her life when she desperately me – I don’t want her to go through this alone,” she continued.

The Skins actress then urged fans to help in any way they can but to not reach out directly to her sister.

“She needs to rest at the moment,” Megan concluded. This content is created and maintained by a third party, and imported onto this page to help users provide their email addresses.
