The devastated husband of a woman who died in a tanning salon has been described as “the most generous person you could ever meet”.

Piata Tauwhare, 30, is said to have suffered cardiac arrest at a Lextan salon near her home in Swansea on Saturday May 28.

She had an 11-minute session but died shortly after.

Piata’s husband Ifan Jones told the Liverpool Echo His mother walked into the salon thinking she had left her phone there without realizing it.

But when she was shown the room the mental health worker was using, she found her daughter-in-law dead on the floor.

The 23-year-old said: “She was the most generous person you could ever meet. No one could ever say a bad word about her and she would bend down for anyone, friends, family or strangers. It is difficult.

“She helped me with everything. I suffer from anxiety and things like that and literally anything, she would do anything for me. Every single one of my friends and family members hit it off immediately.

“Everyone loved her. If I was ever seen without her, everyone would be asking how she’s doing.”

Ifan, who lived with Piata at their Swansea home, said he believes the love of his life could have been saved if she had been found sooner. He also claimed the tanning salon staff should have checked on her.

The warehouse worker said: “She went into what appeared to be cardiac arrest at the Lextan tanning salon. She went in there at 1:50 p.m. for an 11-minute session. She wouldn’t answer the phone, so my mom and I both went out to work to see if everything was okay.

“We found her dead in a room. The staff hadn’t looked for her. She must have had a funny twist and died was only booked for 11 minutes.

“Usually they come in five minutes after the session and check on you so they can clean the bed for the next client. They didn’t even check if she was in there or not. It was my mother who found her.

“I asked her to check, so the staff took her to an empty room and there was no phone. Then when my mother left, they found that she was in another room and the door was locked. My mother looked under the door and saw her feet. They then went off to find the key and when we finally got inside she was dead.”

Ifan has now started GoFundMe to raise money to transport Piata’s body to New Zealand for a traditional funeral in her home country. He said: “We want to bring her back to New Zealand to be with her friends and family and have a traditional funeral.

“I also want to go there and be with her to see her finally settle down. There will be a ceremony here where my friends and family will pay their respects, but then we will fly them to New Zealand to make it right.”

A Lextan spokesman said: “We are sad to confirm that a customer died in our Fforestfach salon on Saturday 28 May. We offer our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased and have also offered advice to all affected employees. We are cooperating with the South Wales Police investigation into this case and any further inquiries should be directed to them at this time.
