A 33-YEAR-OLD social media star has died after suffering a "double cardiac arrest".
Instagram influencer Larissa Borges died on Monday after being hospitalised in a coma for over a week.
The young woman was first admitted on August 20 after reportedly suffering a cardiac arrest in the city of Gramado in her native Brazil, social media posts from her family revealed.
But after suffering a second cardiac arrest, the physical education student sadly passed away.
Larissa had built a following of more than 30,000 online, where she shared selfies, pictures from her travels, and health and fitness tips.
Just three days before her hospitalisation, Larissa – who was from Brasília – had shared a picture of herself posing in Gramado wearing a black puffer coat and checked skirt.

Yesterday, the tragic update that Larissa had died was shared, saying she had “fought courageously” for her life.
