The operation in April was routine: Gleici Correia removed the tonsils.

But five days later, the former Miss Brazil suffered bleeding and fell into a coma for more than two months.

Now Brazil is mourning her loss. Korea, which was crowned Miss Costa do Sol and Miss United Continents Brazil 2018, died on Monday at the age of 27 from kidney failure. She never regained consciousness.

“We are deeply saddened by this loss,” family pastor Lydian Alves told the Washington Post. “She was an amazing woman and everyone loved her. It will not be easy to live without her smile and brilliance. “

We traveled deep into the Amazon to explore deforestation. A terrible discovery awaited us.

The tonsils, two lymph nodes in the back of the throat, help filter bacteria to prevent infection in the body. They are removed to treat breathing problems that interfere with sleep and sometimes recurrent infections. Tonsillectomy, once common, is generally an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. It is considered a relatively safe and routine operation; mortality estimates range from 1 death in 10,000 to 1 in 40,000.

Correia, a model, beautician and influencer with more than 56,000 followers on Instagram, was an evangelical Christian who often posted about God and her faith. Born in Macau, a city on Brazil’s Atlantic coast, 120 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro, she has worked since early childhood.

“We will never know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice,” she wrote in a post on Instagram, reports the Daily Mail. “I really wasn’t born in the golden cradle, I’m from a very modest family, but I’m so proud of that, really proud.

Korea was buried on Tuesday surrounded by family and friends.

“God has chosen this day to gather our princess,” wrote Pastor Jak Abreu, a family friend. “We know that she will miss her very much, but now she will light up the sky with her smile. She has fulfilled her purpose and left in us her legacy of love! ”

A US murder suspect has fled to Mexico. Gringo hunters waited.

Correia was known for working on social projects in her church, especially one that focused on helping women affected by breast cancer.

“Glacier will forever be remembered for her enlightened beauty, joy and empathy shown in her work,” the Brazilian National Beauty Choice wrote on Instagram.

“My heart is in pieces,” Alves wrote. “That smile I received at every end of the service with a hug and” I love you, beautiful shepherds. “

Followers left hundreds of messages of condolence on her Instagram account. The last post, written by her family, shows an illustration of a smiling Korea embracing Jesus with a quote from Timothy’s book of the New Testament:

“I fought well, I finished the race, I kept my faith.
