A mother who is believed to have been smuggling drugs to fund plastic surgery has died from cocaine overdose after one of the capsules burst inside her.
According to UK Metro, moments before she died, Dayse Ricarte, 28, spoke in distress to a friend on camera. She is believed to have swallowed 71 grams of cocaine inside capsules and smuggled them from Brazil to Europe.
However, one of them is believed to have ruptured causing the overdose at Sao Pedro Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.
She told her friend in the distressing video:
‘I think I’m going to die, my friend. Oh Lord, help me. My friend talk to my mum and tell her I love her and my dad. I’m not going to make it. God help me.’
Ricarte, a mother to an 11-year-old boy, sent a picture of the hotel’s business card so that she could get help but moments later she was found dead in the hotel room.
The friend who spoke to her revealed that she had also spoken to her boyfriend in Brazil. She said she ‘talked to Deyse for about two hours until she gave her last breath and fell back to the effect of cocaine overdose in her system.’
Hotel staff told Record TV that hotel security found her body after she failed to answer the phone in her room.
The family friend said Ricarte had a dream of getting plastic surgery and may have agreed to smuggle the drugs to Europe to fund her plans.
