Salma Bashir, a makeup artist and influencer at Slay with Salma, passed away on Wednesday, January 10, 2024. She had been defying all medical odds after her insides were sucked from her body while accidentally sitting on pool suction at the age of five. After a decades-long battle with health, she passed away at 21 years old.

What happened to Salma Bashir?

Salma Bashir was vacationing with her family in Egypt when she was disemboweled while in the kids’ swimming pool. Salma was only five when she accidentally sat on the pool’s main suction valve. Despite immediate efforts of lifeguards to rescue her, the powerful suction pulled small intestines out of her body within seconds.

The Doctors prepared her parents for the worst and gave her just weeks to live. But the little girl defied all odds and survived. Her parents wanted to provide her with the best fighting chance and left everything behind and moved to Pennsylvania, USA, for lifesaving treatment. After raising $300,000 and waiting for nearly two years, Salma underwent a small intestine transplant, but her body rejected the organ, and six months later, it was removed, as was her large intestine and gall bladder. She was being fed by a TPN bag and was waiting for a multiple organ transplant.

Despite her challenges, Salma defied all medical odds and grew up to be a young, confident, upbeat, and kindhearted personality. She had just celebrated her 21st birthday this year. Her life’s journey was marred by challenges and incredible pain, but nothing could dampen her spirits. She continued to smile in the face of adversities. She shared her journey with her loyal followers on her Instagram account, ‘Slay with Salma,’ where she shared snippets of her life, her love for makeup, friends, and her medical updates.

Her authenticity and unique perspective on life garnered her over 88K followers on social media. People loved her for her determination and enthusiasm. She garnered love and well-wishes from all over the world.

But alas, the prayers of thousands were not enough to save her. Salma passed away on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, leaving her family and friends profoundly aggrieved and community and fans reeling with sorrow. Her life and determination serve as an inspiration to millions. She leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and perseverance.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and fans. May she rest in peace.
