A Taylor Swift fan tragically died during Friday night's concert at the Estádio Olímpico Nilton Santos in Rio de Janeiro, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Ana Clara Benevides, 23, fainted during the show and is believed to have suffered a cardiac arrest, according to her family. The incident occurred as the city was under a heat warning, with temperatures soaring over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
According to the Daily Mail, doctors at the scene attempted to revive Benevides, but unfortunately, their efforts were in vain.
Swift, who noticed the high temperatures during the performance, stopped the show at one point and pleaded with stadium staff to provide water to concertgoers.
Clips making the rounds on X, formerly known as Twitter, showed the concerned pop star gesturing to where thirsty fans were in need of hydration. "I'm so sorry, I can't continue the show until everyone gets water," Swift said.
Benevides was rushed to Salgado Filho Municipal Hospital but tragically died shortly afterward.
After the show, Taylor turned to Instagram to share a heartfelt message about her young fan who recently passed away. In a gesture of respect and honor, she has also canceled her upcoming show in Brazil to commemorate her devoted fan.
