A YOUTUBER has died at the age of 28 after a horror car crash.
Influencer Tiago Eugénio was in a coma for 80 days after suffering serious injuries in the smash at the end of June.
The Portuguese star was pulled out of the wreckage unconscious following the early-hours crash on the A22 in Boliqueime, Loulé.
He was then rushed to Faro hospital and was put in intensive care in a coma.
But after more than two months of fighting for his life, Tiago died on Thursday morning.
His devastated mum described her son, who had more than 160,000 followers on Instagram, as a “great warrior” in an emotional tribute.
