On the fateful day of October 12, while traveling along the bustling streets of Rio de Janeiro, a casual motorcycle ride, something she’d done a million times before, turned into a nightmare. Seated behind her boyfriend, Uilblim Do Espírito Santo, a retired military officer, the bodybuilding icon was reportedly passing the Campo Grande neighborhood. This is when suddenly, a van made an illegal turn at an intersection, colliding head-on with the couple, causing a deadly scene.

The blow from the van wrenched Santo’s grasp from the motorbike’s handlebar, leading to an inevitable fall on the cold hard concrete. The driver of the van, meanwhile was seen callously speeding away, leaving Alana and Uilblim to their fate. As the unfortunate couple tried to grapple with the situation, Santo, who was initially lucid and able to communicate with the first responders, started fading away. Tragically, he succumbed to severe injuries as his heart stopped within four hours of getting admitted to the hospital for medical attention. 

With no time to waste, local police began their course of investigation, trying to locate the unsympathetic driver who was behind this misdemeanor. Meanwhile, Paiva was transported to the emergency room, where she remained under critical care. The bodybuilding sensation had to be intubated after vivid evaluations and was later placed into a medically induced coma. After the nerve-wracking news surfaced online, Paiva’s fans, for whom she had not just been a celebrity but also a role model were broken with grief.
