Brazilian Model's Hands And Feet Amputated

| Filed under: Sad Sad


How sad!

20-year-old Brazilian model Mariana Bridi da Costa has had her hands and feet amputated after a serious infection gripped her extremities.

The young woman was a finalist to represent Brazil in the Miss World contest.

At the end of December, she was misdiagnosed with kidney stones when she was really ill with a severe urinary tract infection. The Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterium can be fatal, and in this case, got a hold of her hands and feet.

She remains in intensive care and her family says their primary concern now is for her life.

We hope she recovers soon!

  36. 36

    This is so sad. With all of the problems many of us face personally this really makes many of our problems seem petty. My heart goes out to this young woman.

  37. 37

    That is so horrible, i hope she sues the shit out of whoever misdiagnosed her!!!!

  38. 38

    there was a case that just finished down here in South FL where the same thing happened to another woman and the jury found the doctors and nurses not guilty of malpractice. so sad. they say they atleast they saved their lives but really what kind of life is it if you can't do anything for yourself anymore…she's got to be suffering from major depression too

    Absolutely TRAGIC! This is really sad to read. Although there are more important things like just being alive, this is just so heartbreaking. She is going to have a hard road to be able to cope but she will be beautiful regardless. My prayers go out. Just HEARTBREAKING!

  50. 50

    how tragic. and what a blow to this girls self-esteem that is going to be. i bet she ends up comitting suicide : /

  51. 51

    That's totally sad, she is a very beautiful lady… and no Piggy noone recovers from that kind of surgery you moron… how would you recover if you have took at yourself on daily basis and realize that you had your hand and feet amputated and you have to work really hard on trying to have somehow a quality living??? You idiot!

  52. 52

    sad! poor girl… God bless her!

  53. 53

    God Bless her

  54. 54

    What Perez did not tell is that her both kidneys were removed and now part of her stomach. The infection is all over her. She has septicemia, infection of the blood.
    So sad, she is so beautiful, so young…

  55. 55

    Oh god! I have heard of UTI's causing a kidney infection but for it to have done this WOW! all I can say is that hospital better get ready for a heavy lawsuit! I guess it traveled thru-out her blood stream and thats how it got to her extremities.. how SAD :( I hope she does recover.. but she will never have the quality of life she did before.. :(

  56. 56

    that sucks! She will still be beautiful though.

  57. Brina says – reply to this

    Oh wow :-(

  60. 60

    Now this is One Sad, Sad, Story. Life just doesn't seem to be FAIR or make and sense at times?

  61. 61

    That's so sad. How the hell u confuse a uti with kidney stones? I hope she sues the medical facility.

  62. -V- says – reply to this


    Re: WTFisgoingon

    Yes, she is barely alive anymore and will require so much more medical attention for the rest of her short, agonizing life (should she "pull through"). She will have to have more and more of her body cut away and what the hell is she going to think when she wakes up?

    Why the fuck didn't you people just let me die?

  63. 63

    poor gurl, she's sooo pretty.

  64. ambam says – reply to this


    That's horrible!

  65. 65

    that happened from an urinal infection!! and to think we live in the 21st century…
    the bad things that are happening in this world are just beyond any sick imagination… and the probability for good things to happen nowadays is almost nonexistent…

  66. 66

    poor girl xoxo

  67. 67

    Oh my god! That is so awful..and scary! Poor thing.

  68. 68

    Why is everyone saying poor girl she's so beautiful. So if she was bad looking then it wouldn't really matter. I hope she has a great recovery and this is tragic no matter who or what the person looks like.

  69. 69

    That is so freaky!!! I am barely older than her and had a UTI and Kidney stones! Yikes :-/

  70. 70

    stupid doctors…dont know anything

  71. 71

    You wanna know the saddest part of the entire story? She was on her honeymoon when she caught the disease. Her husband went back to front and EVERYBODY knows you only go front to back.

  72. 72

    WTF a UTI did this? I better take care of mine then!

  73. 73

    I just read her site which is in Portuguese and I understand a little and it says that she has died. so sad…

  74. 74
