Family priest Lidiane Alves Oliviera said: 'She had surgery to remove her tonsils and after five days at home, she had a hemorrhage.She went to Unimed and had a cardiac arrest on 4th April and since then she was in a coma, with no neurological activity. Today she passed away.'

Her body was sent to the Forensic Medicine Institute of Macae for an autopsy.

Pastor Jak Abreu, who knows Correia's family, wrote on social media that her relatives believe that there was medical malpractice during the operation.

He added: 'God chose this day to collect our princess. We know that she will be greatly missed, but she will now be brightening the sky with her smile..'

Correia will be buried at 11.30am local time on Tuesday.

Pastor Abreu added: 'To everyone who prayed, thank you very much. May the Lord reward every prayer of love and all these days together.

'She fulfilled her purpose and left her legacy of love in us. We ask for your prayers for the family and friends that the Holy Spirit may bring comfort in this difficult time.'

Correia was crowned Miss United Continents Brazil in 2018.

She was also an entrepreneur who specialised in laser therapy and permanent makeup, where clients are given cosmetic tattoos to create the look of makeup.

Correia amassed 52,000 followers on Instagram and after she fell into a coma, her account was taken over by relatives who posted prayers on her page.  

She spoke about her upbringing on social media, after she was raised in poverty in Brazil. Correia said she started work when she was just eight, working as a manicurist at a beauty salon. 

'We will never know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice,' she wrote on Instagram.

'I really wasn't born in a golden cradle, I'm from a very humble family, but I'm so proud of it, really proud.'
