A Brazilian model has died on 27 April 2019 after collapsing on the cat way on the final day of Sao Paulo’s Fashion Week.
Twenty-six year-old Tales Soares, known as Tales Cotta, was walking the runway when he suddenly stumbled and fell as he was about to exit.
He fell when he turned to leave the catwalk, some in the audience have said that they thought the fall was part of the performance – before security ran on to assist.
He was rushed to Accident and Emergency in Brazil where tragically, doctors declared him dead.
Local media reported “He had tripped over the straps on his shoes, which were over-sized as part of his outfit’s styling. He then started foaming at the mouth, causing professionals to rush to the stage”.
