Fans watching a fashion show in Sao Paulo, Brazil were stunned when a model suddenly fell — but that was just the beginning of the nightmare.
Tales Soares, 26, was walking on the catwalk when he suddenly collapsed and died in front of terrified onlookers.
The cause of Soares’ death is still unclear. However, doctors think it may have been from an illness the young man was born with.
“Doctors suspect that Tales might have had a congenital problem,” Soares’ agent, Rogerio Campaneli, said. “From videos, they believe he died on the catwalk.”
According to reports, the young model was not feeling well that day, but he went on with the show. As he was walking down the catwalk, he suddenly fell down.
Initially, onlookers thought it may have been part of his routine.
Medical staff then suddenly rushed the stage, which is when everyone realized something was really wrong with Soares.
Witnesses at the event stated that it just appeared as though Soares “lost his footing and fell.”
Video of the tragedy surfaced online, but we should warn you that it may be disturbing to watch:
At age 26, fans were dumbfounded as to how this man could have suddenly fallen ill and died.
Even though the doctors stated it may have been a congenital problem, Soares’ sister, Gabrielle Gomes, thinks otherwise.
She said she was not aware of any health problems her brother may have had growing up. In fact, he had regular checkups his entire life and had no history of problems.
The young man had even spoken to his mother prior to the show and told her he had just eaten and was feeling great.
Reports stated that Soares was extremely conscious about his diet and exercise and did not indulge in any illegal substances.
Until the medical report comes out, his tragic death will remain a mystery.
