The bodies of singer Marília Mendonça and her uncle Abicieli Silveira Dias Filho were buried this Saturday (6), at Cemitério Parque Memorial, in Goiânia, in a ceremony for family and friends. Outside, fans stood around the venue to participate – even from a distance – in the farewell.
The artist and four other people died in a plane crash on Friday (5), in Minas Gerais.
The wake of Marília and Silveira Dias was held this Saturday afternoon at the Goiânia Arena gym. The body of producer Henrique Ribeiro was taken to Salvador, Bahia, where it was veiled and buried.
The aircraft pilot, Geraldo Martins de Medeiros, and the co-pilot, Tarciso Pessoa Viana, who also died in the plane crash, will be veiled in private ceremonies.
The accident happened in Piedade de Caratinga, in Vale do Rio Doce, in the west of Minas Gerais. The plane crashed at a distance of three kilometers from the airport in Caratinga, the city where the singer would perform.
The aircraft fell into a watercourse near an access road on the BR-474 highway. Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais (Cemig) reported that the plane hit a cable in a power distribution tower of the company in Caratinga.
The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) and the Civil Police of Minas Gerais are investigating the accident.
