Fan Dies, Swifties and Taylor Struggle With Rio Heat

Taylor Swift is back on her Eras Tour, and her weekend of dates in Rio de Janeiro has been difficult, with an intense heatwave that led to the death of a 23-year-old fan.

After the tragic passing of a fan named Ana Clara Benevides Machado before the Friday, Nov. 17 show, and with the continuing high temperatures, Swift postponed the Saturday concert. Now, fans are sharing a video from Friday that showed the singer facing issues breathing as well. 

A fan whose Instagram username is queen.taylor.swiftie shared a video they took at the show in which Swift finished a song and turned around, breathing rapidly while trying to catch her breath.

The fan captioned the clip, "Taylor genuinely looks like she’s struggling to breathe, I really hope she’s okay," while they added in text over the video, "Look at how exhausted Taylor got while putting up a 3.5 hour show in rio during a heat wave...hats off to her."

One fan commented, "She was having breathing problems but was still so dedicated towards finishing the show and didn’t pause it except for when HER FANS were the ones having trouble breathing. i love her so much. no one that cares this much about their fans like Taylor."
