Actor hanged playing Judas
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.
