It said: Miss Alabama suffered a “serious brain/brainstem injury,” according to the family’s social media post. The tragedy happened on February 10, 2022, and she was in a coma until February 18, 2022. Following her death, her family issued the following statement:

“This has been a shocking and devastating circumstance for our family, and we can only image how shocking it would be for everyone who knows and cares about her.”

The Miami policy does not allow information on Zoe Bethel’s accident to be made public.

In addition to becoming a reporter, she had an interest in modeling. However, she was sacked from her agency in 2018 due to her political opinions. According to Fox News, Ursula Wiedmann Models informed her through email that they would be unable to work with her due to her “racist political affiliations.” Despite dealing with employment issues, she was liked by many.


To fund medical expenditures, the family launches a GoFundMe campaign.

Santiago Roman started a campaign five days ago to pay Zoe Bethel’s medical fees since she didn’t have health insurance. He held the movement to pay for “current treatments performed, future life-sustaining medication, recuperation and therapy (if required), burial and memorial expenditures (if applicable), and resources for Zoe’s daughter.”
