Adriana Benevides, mother of Ana Clara Benevides, who died last Friday (17) in Rio de Janeiro, after falling ill during a Taylor Swift concert, gave an interview to the program “Fantástico” last Sunday (19) and stated that did not receive any support from Tickets for Fun (T4F) to transport her daughter back to her hometown, in Mato Grosso do Sul.
The mother lamented the lack of support from the event producer for the family, who is alone bearing all the costs to mourn the young woman’s body.
“That’s what hurts the most, she’s been there since Friday (17th), there’s only one forecast for her to get here tomorrow (20th) at 5pm. The people at the show, which she put together, are not supporting us to bring her back home,” she said.
On the program, the girl’s parents also told how they received the news of their daughter’s death. Around 7pm, José Weiny Machado, Ana’s father, received a call from the doctor in Rio de Janeiro.
The doctor stated that he tried to resuscitate the girl and that the care was quick, but the young woman later died.
