Model Dies After Collapsing On A Fashion Week Runway


A Brazilian model has died after collapsing on the runway while strutting for the fashion brand, Ocksa, at the Sao Paulo’s Fashion Week on Saturday. In a photo captured by Associated Press (AP), Tales Soares can be seen helplessly on the floor after tripping and falling down. Although it’s unclear why Soares had such a stumble but reports claimed that it was due to his shoelace while the show organizers affirmed that the 26-year-old male model suddenly took ill during the show.

As reported by local media, Soares was however given immediate medical attention on the catwalk in front of the horrified onlookers and was thereafter taken to the hospital, where he was sadly pronounced dead. “We offer our sincere condolences to Tales’ family,” SPFW said.
