Taylor Swift's Rio tour marred by deaths, muggings and disgruntled fan
Many Taylor Swift fans in Brazil were angry and unhappy during the three-day stop in Rio de Janeiro on her Eras Tour, which ends Monday night. Two people were killed, several people were robbed, and the weather was very hot and dangerous.
Gabriel Mongenot Santana Milhomem Santos, 25, a Swift fan who came from the center-west of the country to see her,
died after being stabbed on a Copacabana beach around 3 a.m. Monday, Rio's police said in a statement.
It was the second death of a Swift fan in four days. On Friday, 23-year-old Ana Clara Benevides Machado fell ill during the singer's first show in the city, and died later that evening at a hospital.
Fans also reported fainting from extreme heat, being mugged or getting caught up in a police raid.
Rio's Municipal Health Department said that Benevides had cardiorespiratory arrest. A friend said she passed out during Swift's second song, "Cruel Summer," but the exact cause of her death is still unknown.
