Portuguese content creator Tiago Eugenio, one of the most promising in his industry in the neighboring country, has died at the age of 28 as a result of a horrific traffic accident on June 23rd. The YouTuber was in a coma for eighty days as a result of the traffic accident.
The content creator died last Thursday morning, his mother announced on her social networks. “I would like to inform you that my love Tiago left this morning. He fought for 80 days. He was a great warrior, but God wanted him to be like that. I can only accept him with enormous pain that breaks my heart. For you, my beautiful love, mom just wants you to go in peace. Surely your grandmothers are waiting for you, a part of me accompanies you,” he wrote.
The accident occurred on a road in the Algarve. The vehicle the Portuguese was driving had an impact that caused him to fall unconscious in the car. Firefighters went to the scene of the accident to rescue him and take him to Faro Hospital, where he has been in intensive care for more than two months.
Tiago Eugenio has been creating content on his social networks for four years. He had around 8,600 subscribers on his YouTube channel and more than 160,000 on Instagram, the two platforms he was on most. The subjects of his publications attempted to portray his lifestyle and denounce the constant criticism he suffered.
His closest confidants announced on the YouTuber’s official account that they were starting a fundraising campaign “to enable the victim to have a dignified burial.” In addition, the Portuguese’s social networks were filled with condolences from friends and followers who rated his work very positively.
