A few days after the painful death of actor Rodrigo Mejía , the host of TV Azteca, Gaby Crassus, revealed more details of the death of her beloved husband , which occurred as a consequence of the COVID-19 that she contracted in early 2021. The former presenter of Al Extemo , bathed in tears, confirmed that the actor of melodramas such as Fire in the Blood or Care with the Angel died because COVID-19 "destroyed his lungs" and his agony occurred after having overcome the disease, because the aftermath of the coronavirus deteriorated his health drastically.
“It destroyed his lungs, pneumonia. His lungs became rigid, he destroyed his lungs in a very short time and I don't know why, "he confessed in an interview with Venga la Alegría.
" I saw how in a week he began to deteriorate and that was when I took him to the hospital, he was in the COVID area hospitalized, with oxygen and suddenly the doctor called me and told me that they had to intubate him, obviously he was afraid, ”she said devastated.
Despite the hospitalization, Gaby Crassus had the opportunity to talk once more with Rodrigo Mejía by video call and another one in front of the hospital, before he passed away last Thursday.
“He saw me and I told him 'my love, don't worry, everything will be fine and we are going to leave together as always. We have a lot of life left together. ' And he made me like this (an affirmative movement with his finger) " , Gaby commented on the last words she spoke with her husband through a telephone link. PP Crassus was able to see Rodrigo before he died:" They let me pass, literally, one minute to see him and I saw him very deteriorated, he fell apart … I told him to make him want, that we had beautiful children, that we had a lot, that we had a thousand plans to do together, that we had to see our children grow up now At 10:30 at night the doctor called me and gave me the news that he had passed away. ”
The driver commented that a few days before the death she managed to dream of her partner happy and without traces of the disease, which she took as a A sign of recovery, but everything changed after Mejía's fatal fate: "I never imagined that he was saying goodbye."
The presenter does not know how they got the coronavirus and is that both she and her husband were always very careful and even disinfected the bills that came to their hands.
One of the great sadnesses that overwhelm Gaby Crassus is that Rodrigo Mejía could not say goodbye to her children, who have reacted in a very mature way for their age.
The communicator also spoke of the last will of her husband, who wanted to be cremated and thrown into the sea: “It is where I am happiest and you also love the beach, so when they go to the beach, which is where we are happiest, I will always be there ”.
Now Gaby Crassus has a mission regarding the fate of her children. "I'm going to make sure that my children grow up surrounded by love, grow empathetic and like their father was," he concluded.
