“Deeply saddened, the Miranda and Vitória families announce the passing of Rarison Ricardo Miranda Vitória, 34, after nine years of a tireless struggle for life.” It is in these terms that the relatives of the one better known as Rarison Ricardo announced the disappearance of the model this Wednesday, November 30. In the prime of life, he suffered from a traumatic brain injury caused by a road accident in November 2013. If we know that his mother Rosely Almeida, 56, took care of him at home , impossible for the time being to know more about the circumstances of his disappearance. The family did not specify the causes of his death and whether it occurred in the hospital or at the family home. Paralyzed and unable to feed himself, Rarison Ricardo needed a team of specialists to keep him alive for nine years at all costs.
These almost ten years spent in a coma have not been easy for the model. Rarison has indeed overcome a heart attack and pneumonia, in addition to other ailments. A power cut that occurred in 2020 did not help his state of health either. “During this period, I could not keep any of my son’s devices, said Rosely Almeida, who works as a nurse, in an interview with the Brazilian media G1. He developed pneumonia, I did not have device to suck it up. The inflatable mattress dried out and bedsores appeared. He was no longer assisted by any electrical device, which he needs most.” A heartbreak for the mother who had seen her son return to signs of life four years ago. In 2018, Rarison Ricardo moved to his eyes, head and hands again very slightly, prompting his mother to stimulate his vocal chords to help him speak. “Some people think he’s going to get up and walk. I dream of this miracle, but I have no illusions”, then confided his mother to G1.
