Miss Brazil dead at 27 following routine tonsil surgery

A Brazilian beauty queen has died at 27 after suffering a brain hemorrhage and a heart attack following a routine operation to have her tonsils removed.

Gleycy Correia — who was crowned Miss Contents United Brazil in 2018 — passed away Monday at a hospital in Macae, in the country’s southeast, more than two months after the simple procedure. Her body has now been sent to a local medical examiner for an autopsy.

“She had surgery to remove her tonsils [in late March] and after five days at home, she had a hemorrhage,” Correia’s family priest,  Lidiane Alves Oliveira, told The Mirror. “She went to Unimed [a local hospital] and had a cardiac arrest on April 4.”

“Since then she was in a coma, with no neurological activity, and today she passed away,” the priest heartbreakingly stated.
