Micaela Papiermeister

, a 24-year-old Argentine, is one of the two survivors of the brutal crash in Playa del Carmen, which also left five Argentines dead.

She is a photographer, originally from Berazategui, and for two months she had been residing in that city in Mexico.

Her health condition became complicated in the last few hours.

“Mica's situation became complicated.

"I ask you all to please send a prayer chain for her, in what each of you believes, to help her get out of this,"

Lucas Figallo

, the other survivor, who is stable and already recovering from several injuries, asked in a WhatsApp status.

fractures suffered..

“Please ask for urgent prayer for Micaela, she needs our faith, no matter the creed… everything comes.

Thank you,” Micaela's stepfather's sister posted.

The reason for the car trip he had undertaken along with

six other Argentines

was to renew his tourist visa, which allows a legal stay for six months on Aztec soil.

They were returning from Belize, 315 kilometers south of Playa del Carmen, where hours before they had stamped their passports at the border crossing and, in this way, obtained

another six months of legal stay.

Although the hypothesis was that the seven Argentines had paid 10,000 Mexican pesos (500,000 Argentine pesos) to a lawyer for the transfer and processing of the new permit, the Attorney General's Office of the State of Quintana Roo was able to establish that only six had paid that sum. and that the rest was driving.

Lucas Figallo, survivor of the tragedy, asked for a prayer chain for Micaela.

That institution is still trying to elucidate the degree of relationship between the driver and that lawyer, as well as whether there is any organization that facilitates these immigration maneuvers.

Maximiliano Laviano, one of the deceased, was the one who was driving the truck in which they were traveling at high speed.

Upon arriving near Puerto Aventuras, an hour south of Playa del Carmen, he lost control and crossed lanes and then crashed head-on into

a van stopped on the shoulder

.

Five died instantly, but Papiermeister was

seriously injured

: a fractured elbow, three cervical vertebrae, a ruptured spleen and an internal effusion.

She underwent surgery on Wednesday, after having spent two days in intensive care, where she is still under observation.

Her mother, María de Lourdes, was able to travel to accompany her, even though she is not aware of her.

Her stepfather, Martín, has not yet been able to travel to Playa del Carmen, but a collection made by Micaela's relatives and friends seeks to enable him to do so and also to be able to cover the costs of hospitalization at the La Joya hospital in that city. .

The post by Mariana Quiroga, sister of Micaela's stepfather.

As happened with the deceased,

the bureaucratic cost is almost prohibitive for their families

, who seek financial support from their surroundings to be able to pay for it.

Following the consultation of the same relatives and other people, the Argentine Foreign Ministry asserted that it is not among its powers to “pay the costs of repatriation of ashes or mortal remains of Argentine citizens who died abroad” and that, instead, it corresponds to the insurance contracted or the family members to assume it.

Nor does it have jurisdiction, he argued, to cover medical expenses, hospitalization, surgeries or health repatriations of Argentines abroad.

Martín Quiroga, Micaela's stepfather, said they opened a savings account to receive money in pesos and dollars to pay for health care costs.

The crash occurred on Sunday in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Laura, a friend of Micaela's family, tells

Clarín

about the rush regarding the collection: “Mica's parents are two workers.

Imagine all the expenses they will have to incur!

For this reason, those close to him are trying to raise money so that his father can also travel.”

Micaela studied photography at the Quinquela Martin Institute, in La Boca, before going to try her luck in Mexico.

There, in the Riviera Maya, she dedicated herself, among other things, to portraying landscapes and other Argentines.

According to journalistic sources in Mexico, the young woman supported herself by working as a receptionist at a beauty center.

She now faces an arduous recovery from the La Joya hospital, Playa del Carmen.
