The digital world is mourning the sudden and tragic loss of Larissa Borges, a vibrant 33-year-old Brazilian fitness influencer with a following of over 32,000 on Instagram.
Borges’ life was cut short after suffering two consecutive cardiac arrests while on a trip to Gramado, Brazil. The shocking death of the Brazilian fitness influencer has left her family heartbroken.
“The pain of losing someone so young, just 33 years old, and so kind, is overwhelming,” her family shared while grieving on social media. “Our hearts are broken, and the longing we will feel is indescribable.”
Borges suffered her first cardiac arrest on August 20, according to Breitbart. The alarming incident left her in a week-long coma, with family and friends continuously updating her vast following on social media about her critical condition.
Tragedy struck again with a second cardiac arrest, which she could not withstand.
Famed for her “captivating personality,” the family noted that Borges was more than just a fitness influencer.
“Her presence illuminated any environment and her contagious energy will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her,” the family stated, highlighting her legacy of “love, joy, and determination.”
“She struggled tirelessly for her life, facing all the obstacles that a warrior and determined woman makes—without complaining,” the family added.
Deputy Gustavo Barcellos said authorities are working to identify what caused the cardiac arrests, according to Breitbart.
“There is a report of a possible ingestion of narcotic substances accumulated with alcoholic beverages,” he shared, indicating that further tests are underway.
