Ac­tor hanged play­ing Ju­das

Midweek Sport - - AGONY SPECIAL -

AN ac­tor died by ac­ci­den­tally HANG­ING him­self while play­ing Ju­das Is­car­iot in an Easter Pas­sion play.

Brazil­ian Ti­ago Klimeck, 27, was en­act­ing the sui­cide of Ju­das dur­ing the per­for­mance on Good Fri­day in the city of Itarare.

He had been play­ing the scene when Ju­das com­mits sui­cide in re­pen­tance for be­tray­ing Je­sus.

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.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the ap­pa­ra­tus that was meant to sup­port Klimeck. They be­lieve the knot may have been wrongly tied.

When the ac­tors re­alised some­thing was wrong, Klimeck was taken down and found to be un­con­scious.

A post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion will take place on next week.
