Yesterday, we updated you on the deteriorating health of the 20-year-old Brazilian model and Miss World finalist who lost her hands and feet due to an infection. Today, she died.
Thiago Simoes, Mariana Bridi da Costa’s fiance, said that she woke up recently from a coma and told him that she was “praying to stay alive, that she still had a lot to do on this earth, that she wanted to go on with her plans.”
Having recently signed with top model scout Dilson Stein, who brought the world Gisele Bundchen, it’s clear that she had a shot at being a household name. Too sad.
