    Brazilian Model Dies In Hospital

    A Brazilian model whose feet and hands were amputated because of an infection has died.

    Officials said Mariana Bridi da Costa's condition deteriorated overnight.
    The 20-year-old was twice a finalist in the Brazilian stage of the Miss World contest.
    She suffered from an infection which forced the amputation of her hands and feet because the flow of oxygen to her limbs was reduced.
    Ms Bridi da Costa's feet were amputated last week. Doctors were forced to surgically remove her hands earlier this week.
    She is also reported to have had part of her stomach removed as doctors tried to contain internal bleeding.
    Ms Bridi da Costa fell ill in December and was originally thought to be suffering from kidney stones.
    But after her condition became worse, she was then diagnosed with a urinary tract infection.
    Doctors said the infection was caused by the life-threatening bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is known to be resistant to multiple kinds of antibiotics.

    This is so sad, so many models seem to die at 20, Heather, Ruslana, Randy and now Mariana. RIP.

    It's a bacteria that causes infections in hospitals but it can also be found in soil and water. The consequences are mostly fatal when it gets to critical organs. :(
