A model has died after collapsing on the runway during Sao Paulo’s Fashion Week in Brazil.
26-year-old Tales Soares known as Tales Cotta was walking the runway on Saturday when he suddenly stumbled and fell down during a show for clothing brand Ocksa. He received help from a medical team at the scene and was later rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead, organisers said.
Organizers added, “We are sorry for this loss and give our sincere apologies to Tales’ family.”
Soares’ cause of death is not yet known.
His management company, Base Management, remembered Soares as having “exemplary behavior.”
In an Instagram post, Base said that the model never had, or complained about health problems and was a vegetarian who had a healthy diet.
The company said that Soares would “always be in our hearts and our memories.”
