The world was left in shock and sadness as news emerged of the untimely passing of Miss Venezuela, Ariana Viera, at the age of 26.
Ariana was slated to represent her country at the highly anticipated Miss Latin America of the World 2023 competition in the Dominican Republic in October. However, her dreams were tragically cut short when she succumbed to injuries sustained in a car accident weeks before the event.
The devastating incident occurred on July 13 in Lake Nona, Orlando, Florida, when Ariana fell asleep at the wheel and collided with a truck. According to her mother, Vivian Ochoa, Ariana had been experiencing fatigue, which led to the unfortunate accident.
Medical professionals at the scene managed to revive her, but she tragically suffered a heart attack and was unable to recover from her injuries.
Vivian Ochoa lovingly remembered her daughter as a compassionate and caring individual who always put others before herself. She was known for her unwavering support for her friends, brothers, and mother, always ready to lend a helping hand or lend a listening ear.
Ariana’s father, residing in Peru, faced visa delays that prevented him from attending her funeral in time, adding to the heartbreak of losing his beloved daughter.
The film community also mourns the loss of Ariana Viera, recognizing her as a promising talent with a bright future in the industry. Apart from her beauty pageant aspirations, Ariana was known for her work in the real estate sector and as the owner of Full House Cleaning Service.
In the wake of her passing, social media has been abuzz with discussions, particularly about a haunting video Ariana had posted two months before, which seemingly hinted at her own funeral.
