Young deaths are the hardest to get over. It was extremely heartbreaking to hear about 20-year-old Lotte Van Der Zee's demise. She was at the peak of her life until a sneaky health hazard gripped her.
Former Miss Teen Universe was on a vacation with her parents when she suffered from a heart attack. According to PEOPLE magazine reports, she remained hospitalized for two weeks. Devastatingly, her family confirmed on her social media accounts that she had passed away on March 6.
Lotte's lively photo was shared along with an emotional caption, reading:
Our pearl, our everything passed away on Wednesday evening March 6th at 22:47. It is incredibly surreal that our dearly beloved Lotte is not around us anymore. Our hearts are truly broken 💔
Her fans reacted with utter disbelief
Her followers on Twitter couldn't believe the sad news and commemorated her by her beauty. They also remarked that she had celebrated her birthday last month on February 21. The girl just stepped in her 20's and then this incident engulfed her life. She will be dearly missed, indeed!
Heart attack statistics
The Dutch model's sudden death alerts us to review the cardiac arrest statistics. Every 37 seconds, an adult dies in America due to cardiovascular disorders. The Texas Heart further elaborates that in teens it is mainly hereditary. It begs the society to pay attention to their health like smoking, high blood pressure, junk food consumption, obesity, etc. It can have adverse effects not only on the unhealthy individual but also on his/her genes.
Rest in peace, Lotte Van Der Zee, you've gone early but won't be forgotten too soon! Share this and pay your condolences to her mourning family.
