Taylor Swift shared devastating news on Instagram before her Brazil concert. "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," she expressed.
Swift expressed deep grief, unable to speak about the loss onstage. "I feel this loss deeply, and my broken heart goes out," she continued.
A fan fainted and later died due to cardiorespiratory arrest. Swift paused her concert to provide water amid sweltering conditions.
In a video, fans are seen chanting "water" as Swift addresses the situation. She directs attention to those in need, emphasizing the importance of hydration.
There's people that need water right here, maybe 30, 35, 40 feet back," she urgently declares. Swift requests assistance for the distressed section of the crowd.
The tragic event occurs amidst a dangerous heat wave in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian states face "great danger" with a red alert issued by the National Institute of Meteorology.
Swift's concern for fans' well-being is evident as she addresses the need for water. The singer shows empathy amid the challenging weather conditions.
