A Brazilian woman recorded a harrowing goodbye video to her parents before she died when a cocaine capsule she was carrying in her stomach burst.

Investigators believe Dayse Ricarte was acting as a drug mule , allegedly agreeing to smuggle 71 grams of cocaine to Europe in return for around £2,350 (12,000 reais).

The autopsy into her death revealed that of the dozens of pellets she ingested, one ruptured and caused a fatal overdose.

According to insiders close to the investigation, Ms. Ricarte flew from Belo Horizonte in southeast Brazil on July 8 and was found dead at dawn the following day in the Sao Pedro Hotel in Lisbon.

After arriving at the hotel, the 28-year-old sent the video to a friend, asking if her face looked swollen, and expressing worries about the state of her health, looking visibly shaken.
