The news of Fidel Castro’s death sent shockwaves through the world, but perhaps nowhere were the reactions as strong as in South Miami — where a sizable Cuban population relocated decades ago when Fidel Castro took power in their home country.
As reaction videos and live footage from the streets of Miami have continued to emerge online, one woman’s video in particular has gone viral. Ivis Suarez shared a video on Facebook of her grandmother learning the news of the dictator’s death.
Suarez captioned the video: “Not even Alzheimer’s could take away the emotions my abuela Ata felt when she found out that monster had died! Thanks to her, my family is in this country today. #GoodRiddanceFidel”
As soon as her granddaughter tells her the news of Castro’s death, the elder woman can’t contain her overwhelming emotions.
