The 26 year-old TV reporter for DirecTV Sports who was covering the World cup in Brazil died in a car crash on her way back from Sao Palo to Belo Horizonte, where Argentina's team is based. Two of her colleagues, Juan Daniel Berazegueti and Fernando Javier Bruno, were injured in the accident. Both are stable and out of danger.

Local authorities said the car lost control after a collision with another vehicle and fell off a cliff on the BR-391 road near the town of Oliveira, with Fernandez thrown out of the vehicle when it crashed.
