Family priest Lidiane Alves Oliviera said:
"She had surgery to remove her tonsils and after five days at home, she had a haemorrhage. She went to Unimed and had a cardiac arrest on 4th April and since then she was in a coma, with no neurological activity. Today she passed away."
Her body was sent to the Forensic Medicine Institute of Macae for an autopsy.
Pastor Jak Abreu, who knows Correia's family, wrote on social media that her relatives believe that there was medical malpractice during the operation.
"God chose this day to collect our princess. We know that she will be greatly missed, but she will now be brightening the sky with her smile."
