Ochoa tells Telemundo13: “They revived her, she had a heart attack, they revived her again and when they were going to take her to trauma care, she had nothing left,

“My girl fell asleep, she was tired.”

Paying tribute, she added: “She would stop everything to help you or listen to you.

“She was always there for her friends, her brothers, her mother.

“I only ask God for strength and strength to carry on with my family and my children, as well as I ask for protection for them.

“Honesty I don’t know how our lives will go on without you.

|I just wish I could hug you and kiss you… hear your laugh.”

She described her daughter as her ‘light, her joy, her desire to live’.

Vivian spoke with immense pride about her daughter’s caring nature, highlighting how she selflessly helped others and was always there for her friends, family and community.

Adding to the tragedy, Viera’s father, residing in Peru, was unable to attend her funeral due to visa complications, as per a local news agency.

The post took on an eerie significance after her untimely passing, leaving many online users stunned by the coincidence.

One person commented: “I hadn’t seen this. Holy God. Predicting her future. How painful to see this.”

Another wrote: “Whenever I see this type of tragedy when the deceased posted a video about their death in the future, it almost always happens.”

While a third commented: “Incredible how sometimes things are decreed.”
