According to the family, Dávine died at 6:04 am, and the hospital report indicated severe head trauma as the cause of death. The wake and burial will take place at the Parque das Flores Cemetery, in the Curado neighborhood, in the West Zone of Recife, but the day and time were not announced until the last update of this report.
“The management and everyone who makes Mirabilandia regret the loss of Dávine Muniz, sympathizing with the family. Few words can represent comfort at this time, especially for those who always seek to offer moments of entertainment and joy. May it be received with all honors in your passage of this plan of ours”, declared the amusement park, in a statement.
Questioned by TV Globo If Dávine’s death causes any change in the accident investigation process, the Civil Police reported that “the case remains under investigation” and more information “will be passed on after the police investigation is concluded.”
Dávine’s accident was marked by legal imbroglios between her family and the Mirabilandia administration. The last one was about the need for the teacher to be discharged from Hospital São Marcos, in Recife, where she was previously hospitalized, and to be placed in home care.
Dávine’s family stated that the renovations needed to install the equipment cost R$50,000 to R$60,000 and that they were waiting for the park to cover the renovation costs.
According to Mirabilandia’s lawyer, Ernesto Cavalcanti, Hospital São Marcos suggested that the home care was for Dávine’s health plan, but the family didn’t accept it because they wanted the home care particular. The park’s management said it would continue “funding all of Dávine’s assistance and fulfilling its responsibilities for her treatment.”
