Josi Maria Death
Josi Maria died in December 2020, at the age of 24, after battling anorexia. She had flown to Gran Canaria for a vacation but died of heart failure shortly after the flight, according to DE24 News. She was traveling with her friend Vanja Resova, a fellow German Instagram model. Resova told German tabloid newspaper Bild in an interview that the two struck up a friendship in 2019 over the internet.
She told Bild: “We spontaneously agreed to travel, we were in Miami together last year and this year. During the lockdown we booked a one-way ticket to Gran Canaria at the end of November to see the island.” Resova told Bild that at the time of their flight, Maria had had two coffees but “hadn’t eaten for two days.” Resova said she tried to persuade her friend to eat once they’d arrived at the hotel, but Maria chose instead to lie down.
Resova told Bild, “Josi asked if I could give her a brief hug and lie down with her for a moment. I then did that in the hope that she would eat something. I fell asleep shortly after her. When I woke up shortly after midnight, I noticed that she was no longer breathing. I tried to wake her up. When it didn’t work out, I went down to reception to get help.”
Resova paid tribute to her late friend Maria in an Instagram post. A translation of the post reads: “Josie was an angel on earth. She has motivated many of you every day to see the positive in everything and to stay strong. As God wanted, she is now upstairs with the angels and looks down at us. It leaves a great void.
Your message that we should never forget: “It is important that you stand by yourself and say yes I need help.” Accepting help is a sign of strength. Together against bullying for Josie ✨ ✨✨✨💖 Together against pointing the finger at others. Together for mental health # EinLichtfürJosie 2222.”
