Model Júlia Hennessy Cayuela, 22, died in an accident on the BR-277, in the Metropolitan Region of Curitiba. She was rescued alive but did not resist the injuries.
This was the lament published on social networks by Nina Sara Silveira, mother of model and influencer from Belo Horizonte Júlia Hennessy Cayuela, who died at age 22 after suffering an accident in Paraná.
The dream of building a house, majoring in biomedicine, having children, and continuing to travel on a motorcycle with her husband along the country’s roads was interrupted, after a collision between the motorcycle and a truck on BR-277, in São José dos Pinhais, in Metropolitan Region of Curitiba, Paraná, on Thursday afternoon (15).
The model from Minas Gerais was on the back of the motorcycle and was rescued alive at the Hospital do Cajuru, in Curitiba, but she did not resist the injuries and died in the early hours of this Friday (16).
Her partner, Daniel Cayuela, who was riding the motorcycle, was also sent to the same hospital, with multiple injuries to his arms and head.
family ‘in shock’
In a conversation with wepublishnews, the pastor and stepfather of the young woman, Jerônimo Onofre, said that the family was at home, in Belo Horizonte, when he received the news of the accident.
“We were at our house, me and my wife, Julia’s mother when the hospital called with the news. We got a flight and, at midnight, we were in Curitiba. She died around 1:00 am,” he said.
Jerome said that Julia was full of life and that the family “is in shock”.
According to the pastor, the family itself told Daniel about Julia’s death.
“He didn’t know. We decided to tell him together, as a family. Daniel is in shock, crying a lot, not believing what happened, they were very united and in love,” said the pastor.
Daniel and Julia were married for 4 years.
Kelle Gripp, pastor of the church the influencer attended for about four years, says she will remember Julia as an extremely God-fearing person and “very good with life.”
“She lived a little, but a lot surrendered to every purpose. It was marked by fidelity, friendship, and companionship”, he highlighted.
According to the Federal Highway Police (PRF), the suspicion is that the truck was crossing the lane when the motorcycle hit the side of the vehicle. The causes of the accident are investigated.
A Military Police (PM) helicopter also provided assistance.
The couple was taking a motorcycle trip through the mountains of southern Brazil.
