YouTube star and influencer Tiago Eugénio has died at the age of 28.
Tiago spent the last 80 days of his life in a coma after suffering serious injuries in a car crash at the end of June. After spending more than two months fighting for his life, the Portuguese star tragically died on Thursday morning.
Tiago was pulled from the car wreckage by firefighters and rushed to Faro hospital in the early hours of the morning. He was later put in an induced coma in intensive care. The social media’s star mum described him as a ‘warrior’ in his battle to survive, as she broke the news to his legions to fans this morning that he had sadly passed away.
In a social media tribute, Tiago’s bereft mother posted: “”One of the things I always asked God for was that I would never have to go through pain like this. I want to inform you that my love, my Tiago, left this morning. He fought for 80 days. A great warrior, but God wanted it that way. I can only accept it with enormous pain, which destroys my heart. To you my beautiful love, mother just wants you to leave in peace. You will definitely have your grandmothers waiting for you, a part of me goes with you. I will love you forever. One day we will meet,” she added.
Tiago amassed a huge following on YouTube and Instagram with heartbroken fans also sharing their sadness at the loss.
Paying tribute, one follower shared: “My dear friend, you will never be forgotten, you will always be in my heart. Rest in peace my friend. I leave here a memory of a day so important to me that you were part of and I thank you for everything you did on that day. See you one day my friend.”
