Ribeiro expressed his concern about the incident, which took place just before Ava’s fourth birthday. He revealed that Ava suffered from extensive road rash on her face and arm, necessitating immediate surgical intervention, during which doctors had to carefully remove damaged skin.

During his interview, Ribeiro acknowledged the severity of Ava’s condition, emphasizing that her recovery process would be arduous and lengthy. When asked about his daughter’s prognosis, Ribeiro responded with honesty, indicating that it would require time and patience.
