The Kennedy clan has suffered another untimely death.
US correspondent Richard Arnold told Newstalk ZB that Kara Kennedy, the late Ted Kennedy’s eldest daughter, was at a health club exercising when she collapsed and died aged 51.
Patrick Kennedy, her brother and former congressman says her heart gave out, she had battled lung cancer earlier on and she came through that but he says it had taken a toll on her physically.
Kara Kennedy lived her life outside the spotlight.
Other young Kennedy deaths apart obviously from JFK and Robert Kennedy were David who died of drugs, Michael – skiing – and John Junior, who died in a plane crash.
