He underwent surgery and his condition was stabilised, but died shortly afterwards. It is not known what kind of vitamin injections he had used.

His wife Claudia Plascencia confirmed his death on Facebook saying: “Family and friends the love of my life is already enjoying the glory of God, thank you all for your prayers.”

She added in tribute: “Love of my life, it is so painful to accept that I will no longer see you and have your company, your voice or your caresses.

“My heart has been broken and I don’t know what I will do without you.”

Just 48 hours before his death he shared a video on social media revealing he had suffered an adverse reaction to vitamin injections after administering them himself.

He said: “I am in the hospital because I have a problem in [my] bottom.

"By mistake, I used [the injections on] three different days, far from each other.

"I injected vitamins and the day before yesterday I did the same in the other part of my bottom.

"I have been suffering strong pain, around 12 levels out of 10, for six hours.”
