Following the tragic event, Cayuela was taken to a nearby hospital through a firefighter's helicopter.
Her stepfather, Jerônimo Onofre, confirmed that she died the day after. "We were at our house, me and my wife, Julia's mother, when the hospital called with the news," Onofre stated.
He also mentioned that he and Cayuela's mother were in Curitiba when she died, so they immediately got a flight going to São José dos Pinhais.
The rising Instagram star's husband, on the other hand, survived the accident. Onofre stated that Daniel didn't know his wife passed away; that's why they decided to tell him together as a family.
"Daniel is in a state of shock, crying a lot, not believing what happened, they were very united and in love," he stated. (via E! News)
