Venezuelan beauty queen Ariana Viera has died from injuries she sustained in a horrific car crash in Florida last month. She was 26.
Viera is accused of falling asleep behind the wheel July 13 before colliding with a truck in Lake Nona, Orlando, according to media reports.
Her death comes two months after she made a chilling video for her funeral.
Although the official cause of the crash hasn’t been reported, Viera’s mother shared that her daughter had been suffering fatigue and fell asleep behind the wheel.
“My girl fell asleep. She was tired,” Vivian Ochoa said in an interview with Telemundo31.
“They revived her, but when they were going to take her to trauma care, she stayed there,” she added.
She reportedly suffered a heart attack after being revived.
The grieving mother went on to praise her daughter for always championing others, but hinted that her caring attitude may have led to her exhaustion.
“She helped too many people,” Ochoa explained. “She would stop everything to help you or listen to you. She was always there for her friends, her brothers, her mother.”
Viera’s father, who lives in Peru, reportedly applied for a humanitarian visa to attend his daughter’s funeral, but wasn’t approved until the day after the service.
In May, Viera posted an eerie video on Instagram referencing her future funeral.
“Recording myself for my future funeral because it’s always me who takes the videos no one takes them of me,” she captioned a video with several clips of herself pretending to be caught doing mundane activities like waking up, drinking water and just hanging around the house.
The video is part of a trend of people making montages of themselves looking good and pretending someone is sneaking a video of them to poke fun at movie or documentaries that include similar B-roll.
Her followers noted the grim timing of the video.
Viera was due to represent her home country of Venezuela at the Miss Latin America of the World 2023 competition in the Dominican Republic in October.
“I didn’t know that God had given me an angel. I didn’t know that God had given me a little piece of heaven for a very short time,” her mother said.
