Gleycy Correia, former Miss United Continents Brazil in 2018, has died at the age of 27.
The beauty pageant queen underwent a routine surgery to remove her tonsils and days later suffered heavy bleeding and had a heart attack on April 4th.
Correia suffered a hemorrhage and then fell into a coma.
She reportedly never regained consciousness, and over two months later, she died of kidney failure.
“We are deeply saddened by this loss,” family pastor Lidiane Alves told the newspaper.
“She was an amazing woman and much loved by everyone. It won’t be easy to live without her smile and shine.”
“My heart is in pieces,” added Alves.
