She was such a bubbly, vibrant soul!

While on holiday with her family in Westendorf, Austria, Lotte suddenly felt ill and was rushed to the nearest hospital. Her family quickly shared the news on her Instagram, seeking for fans’ prayers and hope.

“Dear friends, 
With the utmost sorrow we want to inform you about the reason behind Lotte’s public absence in recent days. Two days ago, during our holiday in Westendorf – Austria, Lotte started to feel unwell during the afternoon. A feeling that escalated quickly in sudden cardiac arrest”, they posted.

Lotte was kept in an artificial coma, and doctors said they had found no cause of her acute cardiac arrest. She was then transferred to a neurological specialized hospital in Munich, Germany.

However, things seemed to worsen as the model continued to be in critical state– up until her last breath.

“Our pearl, all of us died on Wednesday evening, March 6 at 10:47 pm. It is super unreal that our dear Lotte is no longer there. Our hearts are broken.”

Her mother, Eugeniek, gave a detailed account about the processes that lead to her death.

“It started with her kidneys. She was then put on kidney dialysis, which kept her alive. But when it became clear on Wednesday that it would not be okay, she was taken off the machine. Lotte has had to endure a lot over the past few days. We did not want any further suffering”, she explained.

Within thirty minutes from when the machine was disconnected, Lotte died in the presence of her parents and close family. Sad 😢

The unusual last moments Lotte spent

“Lotte was out with friends the night before the heart attack, but came back in good shape and with no complaints”, BILD.de reported.

She went to bed, promising to show up for breakfast the following day. But she never showed up. She was found sick in bed.

The cause of her sudden attack is still under investigation. It is clear that events that lead to this were rather unusual. Sooner than later– as the family requested, the results would be certain.

“Now she is the most beautiful star in the sky. Of course you always want to keep your child with you. But we had to let her go. Out of respect for Lotte … she deserved to be allowed to go”, her mother tearfully said.
