Glauto and his wife, publicist Lícia Dutra Tuquarre, got married on Saturday (23), in Teresina (PI). On Sunday (24), at 8:35 pm, the couple boarded at Guarulhos-SP airport for Doha, capital of Qatar, where they would stay one night before heading to the Maldives, where they would spend their honeymoon.
Before he died, a doctor felt chest pains and was rescued by passengers
However, on the way, during a flight to Doha, the capital of Qatar, the doctor began to feel sick, received assistance, but could not resist and died. The suspicion, according to family members, is that he suffered a heart attack.
Now, the government of Piauí, in addition to the doctor’s friends and family, are mobilizing to expedite the transfer of the doctor’s body to Brazil. Two officers from the Brazilian Consulate in Qatar went to meet his wife at the Doha airport and will be in charge of transferring the body, which, due to bureaucracy, should take about three days to arrive in Brazil.
