In a harrowing turn of events, one of the twin sons of esteemed journalist Matilde Obregón has tragically lost his life at the age of 29. The accident, which occurred in Valle de Bravo, State of Mexico, also left her other son hospitalized.

Matilde Obregón, 52, founder of the TVNotas magazine and a luminary in the entertainment journalism space, is grappling with immeasurable grief. The distressing news first came to light through social media, where it was revealed that she was mourning the untimely death of her son.

The deceased was one of the twins born to Matilde Obregón and Francisco Parra, also a journalist.

In an intimate chat with Mimí, Matilde once mentioned that both her twins studied communication. Interestingly, they chose to pursue sports over the glitz and glamour of show business.

The Fatal Incident

Details surrounding the accident remain scant. Early reports suggest that a balcony structure collapsed at a residence where the young men were present. This catastrophe, which transpired in the wee hours of a Sunday morning, resulted in the death of one and left four others injured. The fallen balcony, approximately 3 meters in length and 2 meters wide, crashed down on the unsuspecting individuals. By the time local authorities arrived at the scene, it was too late for one.

An audio clip shared by ‘La Tia Sandra’ on her Twitter account shed some light on the incident. The clip highlights that a fire ignited within the premises. Consequently, a beam gave way, leading to the tragic collapse of the structure. Ana María Alvarado, another figure in the journalism community, shared her insights on the event. She noted that the calamity was sparked by the fire, resulting in the unfortunate death of Matilde Obregón’s son.

A Community in Solidarity

In her message, Alvarado emphasized the gravity of the incident, stating that it was the aftermath of a fire in the Valle de Bravo house that led to the roof’s collapse. She also mentioned that Matilde’s surviving son’s exact condition remains unknown.

The tragic event serves as a somber reminder of life’s fragility, with a close-knit community rallying together to offer strength and support to the bereaved family.
