the young woman’s death
According to people close to Alice Moraes, she felt sick at the show that took place at Pepsi On Stage, being treated in the ambulance that was at the service of the event’s producer.
Camila Rodrigues, Alice’s friend, said in an interview with “Bom Dia Rio Grande” (RBS TV) that the young woman started to feel bad after only 30 minutes of presentation and decided to go to the bathroom.
Minutes later, Camila would have received a message from Alice saying she was in the ambulance and went to the scene.
“I found her unconscious, sitting next to the ambulance in a white chair lying down. I asked the nurse how she got there and texted me if she was unconscious, and the nurse reported that she wrote the message herself. They told me they found her unconscious in the bathroom,” said the friend.
Andréa Moraes, Alice’s sister, said she questioned the professional about the student’s medication and vital signs check. The nurse would have said it wouldn’t be necessary.
“[Ela afirmou] that they couldn’t give her medication because she had a bariatric surgery, that we had to get her out of there because she had been there for a long time and she needed to go home to sleep”, he told the network.
Seeing that her sister already had a purplish color, she again drew the attention of the professionals. According to Andrea, they tried a resuscitation maneuver, but it was too late.
Friends and family members of the veterinary student reported on social media the precariousness of medical care and the lack of condolences on the part of the artist, of whom Alice was a fan.
My friend’s sister died at the concert @luisasonza for lack of on-site medical care. She may not have control over it, but at least she could have paid her condolences, right, no condolences?… I love Luisa but keeping quiet about it is problematic
