The influence of social media and the pressure to meet beauty standards can have tragic consequences. Such is the case of this tragedy that has shocked the community in China, after a 21-year-old influencer lost her life during a fitness camp in Shaanxi.
The young woman, known as Cuihua, was participating in a weight loss camp when the incident occurred. Her family confirmed the sad news through a statement on social networks, thanking them for the support and love received in these difficult times.
“Our daughter has gone to heaven and we are still coming to terms with this painful reality. We hope that people will not be fooled by those who seek to entertain themselves at the expense of others’ pain, which could affect parents and family. Allow our daughter to rest in peace, thank you”, they expressed in a message published through social networks.
It is worth mentioning that, after these events, the family did not attribute responsibility for the tragic event to the physical conditioning camp in which Cuihua participated.
For this reason, through the Douyin platform, the Chinese version of TikTok, the parents of the deceased asked that other training camps not be cyberbullied, making it clear that they did not want to spread sadness and pain.
On the other hand, the parents said that the young woman died after doing some exercises and began to feel bad, being transferred to the hospital and dying shortly after. However, the exact cause of her death has not been revealed.
Cuihua was in this place trying to lose 90 kilos, a situation that he was documenting on social networks, sharing his live workouts with almost 10,000 followers, which often took place both in the morning and at night, as well as his strict diet.
According to what was reported by various media, the young woman had managed to lose more than 25 kilos in the first months and during the next six she lost 10 kilos. In total she lost about 36 kilos in eight months.
The tragic news of Cuihua’s death has shocked those who followed her weight loss journey on social media. His followers are dismayed and send messages of condolence to the family at this difficult time.
