Brazilian Actor Accidentally Hangs Himself Onstage

A tragic accident led to the death of a Brazilian actor who accidentally hanged himself onstage during an Easter Passion play. 

Seventeen days after the incident, Tiago Klimeck, succumbed to cerebral hypoxia on April 22. 

The 27-year-old was reenacting the suicide of Judas Iscariot, but the safety vest he was wearing did not work (it could have risen up across his neck.)  Brazilian police are investigating because the knot on the vest may have been tied incorrectly. 

Klimeck was left hanging onstage for four minutes before the other cast members realized that something had gone wrong. In a Huffington Post piece, it was mentioned that an autopsy is being performed.
