Ex-Miss Brazil, Gleycy Correia dead at 27 after Suffering Brain Hemorrhage

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

Correia boasted more than 52,000 followers on Instagram with her account being taken over by her family after she fell into a coma.

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.

The brunette beauty was born into poverty in Brazil and used her social media accounts to talk about her humble beginnings.

“I really wasn’t born in a golden cradle, I’m from a very humble family, but I’m so proud of it, really proud,” she wrote beneath one post.

After winning the pageant, the brunette worked as a model and a beautician who specialized in permanent makeup. She posted much of her work on her Instagram page.
