5 Models Who Got Killed On The Job
On the outside, modelling seemed to be glamorous gig. From jet-setting all around the world to trying on couture designer dresses and of course, staying in at the finest hotels ever. Pretty fancy! But underneath all the glitz and glam, lurks a dark-side in the modelling industry. To be on the top, you’ll have to do whatever it takes to every client’s dream model.
Here are five models who went through extreme lengths only to get killed on the job.
1. Tales Soares
The Brazilian model passed away last Saturday, after collapsing on the catwalk during the Ocksa show on the last day of Sao Paulo Fashion Week. With no explanation on the cause of death, it was said that the 26 year old model fell while turning to leave the runway.
Initially, it was believed that Tales tripped on his shoelace however it turns out it could have been an epileptic fit as he was foaming at the mouth. Tales was signed under Base MGT modelling agency.
5. Katie May
Playboy model, Katie May injured her neck when she fell during a photoshoot session in 2016 – one week before death. Due to the neck injuries, she was then examined by a chiropractor. However less than a week before her death, the 34 year old, self-titled ‘Queen of Snapchat’ suffered a catastrophic” stroke, leaving her on life support. But she was then taken off life support a few days later.
Months later, Los Angeles County Coroner released an updated information, that the stroke that killed Katie May was caused by “an injury sustained during a ‘neck manipulation by chiropractor.
The assessment showed that the chiropractor had caused a tear in her left vertebral artery, which blocked the blood flow to the brain, causing a stroke. It was previously believed that a block in her carotid artery following a fall during a photoshoot may have been the cause of the fatal stroke.
