The devastated mother of a Taylor Swift fan who passed away during a concert couldn’t contain her emotions as she slammed the lack of support from concert organizers.
Ana Clara Benevides died on November 17 after attending the show at the Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
According to the Brazilian newspaper Fohla De Sao Paolo, the 23-year-old passed about and was taken to a nearby hospital where she passed away.
Benevides’ cousin, Estela Benevides, said that the Taylor Swift fan died but no official cause of death has been disclosed.
After the tragedy, Benevides’ family have now spoken out about the death of their daughter.
Her father Weiny Machado told Fohla De Sao Paolo: “I lost my only daughter, a happy and intelligent girl. She was about to graduate in Psychology next April.
“I want it to be found out whether they were in fact prohibited from bringing water, whether there was negligence in providing assistance. I know that the singer was handing out water to her fans, and that is absurd for an event of this size.”
The grieving father also hopes that “if negligence is confirmed, someone will be punished, so that this doesn’t happen to anyone else.”
Now, the fan’s devastated mother has criticized the alleged lack of support the family has received from concert organizers.
“The people at the show, who put it together, are not giving us support to bring her home,” she expressed.
“I know that these things don’t even go through the singers, the artists don’t even know about it.”
The mother added: “But we wanted them to give us the support, to bring her home. Because, unfortunately, we are paying for everything. And my daughter hasn’t arrived yet.”
