The health minister of Ourilândia do Norte, in South Pará, died after an accident this weekend. Géza da Silva Dantas was saved, but she did not fight back.

The city council declared three days of official mourning and the Civil Police reported this Sunday (25) that they were investigating the case.

The accident occurred on Saturday morning (24) on PA-279, near São Félix do Xingo. According to the civil police, “the woman was rescued alive, taken to the emergency care unit (UPA) of the municipality, and taken to the municipality of São Félix do Xingu, where she died in the afternoon.”

In a note, the city council mourned the death and sympathized with the secretary’s family.

“Giza leaves a legacy of cordiality, friendship, and concern with all citizens,” reads an excerpt from the note.

Without giving further details, the police said, “Care is being taken to determine the cause of the accident.” She was driving alone.

Born in São Félix do Xingu, Géza was a nurse and left a young daughter.

A note of condolence in the death has also been issued by the Municipal Council of São Félix do Xingu, as has the Council of Municipal Health Secretariats of Pará (Cosems/PA). “The secretary was the victim of a tragic accident. At this moment of deep pain, Cosems/PA’s thoughts are with family and friends,” says the board.
