Who was Ana Clara Benevides?

Ana Clara Benevides was a 23 year old Taylor Swift fan from Brazil.

She died after visiting a stadium in Rio de Janeiro to attend a Taylor concert on Friday, November 17.

Swift had arrived in South America earlier in November for the accompanying leg of her epic Eras tour.

What happened to Ana Clara Benevides?

Tragically, it has been reported that a member of Ana Clara’s family has confirmed her death.

According to Brazilian publication Folha de Sao Paulo, Ana’s cousin Estela Benevides received the awful news from doctors over the phone.

Ana Clara is reported to have died of cardiorespiratory arrest after fainting at Rio de Janeiro’s Nilton Santos Stadium ahead of Taylor’s gig there.

Her friend, Thiago Fernandes, told press that Ana Clara was revived after fainting at the stadium but had a second arrest on the way to the hospital.

Temperatures in Rio de Janeiro were recorded as high as 100F, approximately 37C, on the day of Taylor’s concert, leading to a local heat warning.

It has also been reported that the stadium reached a thermal sensation of 60C.

Firefighters unofficially recorded 1,000 fainting spells during the November 17 show by the Midnights star.

Fans were reportedly banned from bringing water bottles into the stadium for Swift’s gig.

Many concert-goers complained on social media about the ban, suggesting they should be permitted to bring them in due to the high temperatures.

Footage released from the event shows Swift pausing her performance to instruct her team to get water to fans.

The star, who is dating American football star Kelce, was also seen handing out bottles to the crowd herself after her hearing her fans chant for water.

What has Taylor Swift said about her fan’s death?

Shortly after her November 17 show, Taylor shared a handwritten note on her Instagram story addressing Ana Clara’s death.

The message read: “I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show.

“I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this.

“There’s very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young.”

Taylor continued: “I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.

“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends.

“This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”

The concert where Ana Clara first fainted was the first of Taylor’s three scheduled shows in Rio de Janeiro.

The final stop of the South American leg of the Evermore star’s tour is scheduled for the end of November in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Swift will then travel to Europe in 2024 for several more dates, including some in the UK.
