A Brazilian model died after collapsing on the catwalk during the Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
Tales Soares died after falling during the show of the fashion brand Ocksa. Service assistance rushed onto the stage to treat the 26-year-old. Spectators of the show initially thought the fall was part of the model's act, but it suddenly became clear that the model was in serious danger when he started to foam out of his mouth.
It has yet to be confirmed how Soares died. After his death, images of him began to appear on social media shortly after making a fast turn on the catwalk.
A friend of Soares, Faelo Ribeiro, has confirmed to GSN that the model was homosexual and a vocal advocate of LGBTI rights. "Tales died while he did what he loved most," said Ribeiro.
