UPDATE: Brazilian Miss World Model Mariana Bridi da Costa Has Passed Away

I have some very sad news to share. Yesterday, the world was introduced to the terrible tragedy that had befallen Brazilian Miss World model, Mariana Bridi da Costa. Sadly, she passed away early this morning at 2:30 am. Here is the sad news from the AP:

"Health officials say a Brazilian model whose feet and hands were amputated because of an infection has died.

Officials said in a statement early Saturday that 20-year-old Mariana Bridi's condition deteriorated overnight. She died at 2:30 a.m.

The Espirito Santo State Health Secretariat said in the statement she died from complications related to a generalized infection. It was caused by the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is known to be resistant to multiple kinds of antibiotics.

Bridi had been in the hospital in the city of Serra in southeastern Brazil since Jan. 3. She fell ill in December and doctors originally diagnosed her with kidney stones, local media said.

Bridi was twice a finalist in the Brazilian stage of the Miss World pageant."

May God be with her family and friends, and may she now rest in peace...
