Vanessa Mancini, a well-known influencer, has passed away at the age of 41.
Mancini, 41, was in her luxury condo in the northwestern city of Manaus with her parents when she suddenly collapsed.
But when the emergency services arrived, Mancini was showing no vital signs. Her family later confirmed she had passed away inside her home on Monday morning.
In July, Mancini had visited a cardiologist and posted a video of herself on Instagram wearing a ‘holter monitor’ which records the heart’s electrical activity and helps medics evaluate any irregularities.
