Dan Hanlin from Dancing On Ice talks about his daughter’s frightening battle with sepsis

Ben Hanlin shared the fear he felt when his baby daughter Delilah fought sepsis for her life.

The Dancing On Ice star, 33, told Loose Women how he rushed home to find the hands and feet of the seven-month-old blue when an ambulance arrived to take her to the hospital.

After stabilizing after two hours of anxiety and being released later, Ben wanted to speak out and encourage other parents to act quickly if they suspect their child might have the infection.

“I was about to go on stage, I got a call from my wife, Briony, in which she said she had called an ambulance. I was like: “Right, I’m coming home,” said the magician in the program.

‘She [paramedics] cast a glance at her, with her spotted skin and a temperature of 103 degrees. She struggled to breathe, her hands and feet turned blue.

“They said,” We must go. ” They didn’t mess about it. “

Delilah was hospitalized for six days before being released from her parents.

‘Dancing on ice is live every Sunday, and this all happened on Thursday, I stayed in the hospital and I woke up the next day and she was stable, and my wife said you can’t do anything here so go to training.

“I went and I wasn’t really with it … I had to go into the show and be completely happy.

“She’s great now, she’s 100 percent.”

Ben also admitted that he knew practically “zero” about the potentially deadly condition that he had to google to discover that it is a form of blood poisoning that occurs when the body attacks its own tissues and organs after an infection.

It may initially resemble flu or chest infection, with symptoms such as rapid breathing, seizures or convulsions, and a rash that does not fade when you press it.

Ben said he had decided to speak out about Delilah’s health problems in an effort to raise awareness about the condition and symptoms.

“It was frightening. She was connected to tubes and carried an intravenous drip, something no parent ever wants to see. The whole thing was a huge shock, “he told the sun.

Ben returned to the league last Sunday after his youngest child was released from the hospital.

Loose Women is broadcast on ITV on weekdays at 12.30
