Fan Passed Away at Eras Tour Rio

1 fan passed away of cardiac arrest and multiple others were fainted due to heat exhaustion at Taylor Swift's Eras Tour show in Rio. Currently, Brazil is experiencing a massive heatwave. Despite this, the stadium didn't allow anyone to bring in water bottles, nor did they provide enough water bottles on site for fans to purchase. Twice during the show, Taylor tried to get fans water, though it's clear that it didn't happen, at least not in a significant way. Fans that were there are saying the venue seemed very underprepared for tonight both in regards to staffing to help with the crowds as well as to respond to the heat that was settling into the sold out stadium. 

EDIT: Some are saying the death is unverified though several sources are reporting on it. What is not up for question is the water and heat situation and many fans suffering heat exhaustion.

Edit; Taylor released a statement

This is so horrible. If she from the stage was able to tell that there was a problem, then I'm sure that it was pretty bad. I truly don't understand why given the circumstances fans were banned from bringing water and especially why the stadium wasn't prepared with enough water for everyone to get one if they needed one. 

I'm very glad that she tried to do what she could to help the situation, but it seems from fans that were there that no matter what she did, the stadium was understaffed and ill equipped to respond to the amount of people that needed assistance. 

This news just broke so I'm sure her and her team are just now hearing about it so I would honestly not be shocked if tomorrow and Sunday's shows were cancelled and/or rescheduled.

A similar thing happened at a Gothic Rock festival over the summer out near Vegas. It was a major heat wave and no one was allowed water. It bothers me so much that such a basic life necessity is not allowed for people at some shows.

TaylorNation employees handing out water because the stadium refused to allow fans to bring their own

wow this is so devastating honestly.... amazing that Taylor was trying to help them but absolutely insane that the stadium wasn't better equipped especially considering the heat wave? why would they not allow water bottles?

This is horrible (if accurate), and I really hope deranged stans don't blame Taylor. This is on the stadium & the stadium's organization. As others said, something like this happened in Vegas a while back.

There’s nothing on mainstream websites about it. Literally just Reddit posts with rumors. Links please

it seems like the venue would rather put people in danger than pass up the opportunity to sell $8 tiny cups of water (that people deep in GA pits who have been out in the heat all day can’t even get to). that video of taylor demanding a bottle of water to throw into the crowd while singing all too well is horrifying. if she can see from the stage (while performing) that people need help, clearly the venue staff could. but god forbid they give out free water. i hope the venue is sued for every penny. 

 

there are also rumors online that they closed off the open air parts of the stadium with wooden slats to prevent people from hearing the concert from outside and gathering to listen. i really freaking hope that turns out not to be true
