A 23-year-old woman died of cardiac arrest due to dehydration during U.S. singer Taylor Swift’s concert in Rio de Janeiro on Friday night. Brazil is going through an extreme heat wave — that day, the temperature reached 39°C, while the thermal sensation hit 60°C. Tickets For Fun (T4F,) the company in charge of organizing the event, said the young woman was immediately assisted by paramedics. During the show, Swift herself complained about the heat and asked for water to be given to the fans. She was about to graduate in Psychology next April, saving money,” he told Folha de São Paulo newspaper.
