Lieve vrienden, Met het grootst mogelijke verdriet willen wij jullie hierbij informeren over de reden achter Lotte’s publiekelijke afwezigheid de afgelopen dagen. Twee dagen geleden, tijdens onze vakantie in Westendorf - Oostenrijk, begon Lotte zich in de loop van de middag onwel te voelen. Een gevoel dat snel escaleerde in een plotselinge hartstilstand. Ze is naar het dichtstbijzijnde ziekenhuis gebracht waar ze in coma ligt en momenteel onder intensieve supervisie van de artsen in slaap wordt gehouden, zodat zij haar gezondheid kunnen monitoren. Bij voorbaat dank voor de liefdevolle woorden over onze dochter.

A week ago, Lotte's parents gave an update on her condition. "Lotte's situation is unfortunately still unchanged," they said. "However, she has now been transferred to an academic hospital in Munich, where she is still kept a sleep under intensive supervision of the doctors in order to monitor her health."

Lotte's mom Eugeniek told De Limburger that her daughter's condition worsened after she fell into a coma. "It started with her kidneys," she shared. "She was then put on kidney dialysis, which kept her alive."

She explained their decision to take her off the machine after weeks in coma, "But when it became clear on Wednesday that it would not be okay, she was taken off the machine. Lotte has had to endure a lot over the past few days. We did not want any further suffering."

The Dutch model won the pageant competition, which is commonly abbreviated Miss Teen Universe, in 2017. She died just a day before her 20th birthday.
