|Brazil Actor Playing Judas Dies From Accidental Hanging by seunlayi(m): 11:54pm On Apr 23, 2012|
A Brazilian actor has died after
accidentally hanging himself while
playing Judas in an Easter Passion
Tiago Klimeck, 27, was enacting the suicide of Judas during the
performance on Good Friday in the city of Itarare.
The actor was hanging for four minutes before fellow performers
realised something was wrong.
Klimeck was taken to hospital suffering from cerebral hypoxia but
died on Sunday.
The Passion play was being performed in Itarare, 345km (214
miles) west of Sao Paulo.
Klimeck was re-enacting the scene in which Judas commits
suicide in repentance for his betrayal of Jesus Christ.
Police are investigating the apparatus that was meant to support
Klimeck. It appears the knot may have been erroneously tied.
When the actors realised something was wrong, Klimeck was
taken down and found to be unconscious.
The Santa Casa de Itapeva hospital has confirmed the death and
an autopsy will take place on Monday.
