TikTok beauty queen dies in freak skydiving accident

Social media is mourning the death of a Canadian beauty queen and TikTok influencer, who tragically perished last week during a freak skydiving accident.

The catastrophe occurred Saturday while Tanya Pardazi, 21, was her first Skydive course with Toronto in Innisfil, Ontario, Jam Press reported. This was reportedly her first time jumping along, per the skydiving firm, which requires students to complete a day of ground training before attempting a solo dive, according to CTV News Toronto.

However, the dive went south after the Toronto University student opened the parachute too late during her descent.

According to a statement by Skydive Toronto, Pardazi had “released a quickly-rotating main parachute at a low altitude without the time or altitude required for the reserve parachute to inflate.”

Following the accident, the thrill seeker was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Pardazi was a fixture on TikTok, where the philosophy student regularly posted videos discussing everything from makeup tips to woolly mammoths to her almost 100,000 followers. In the final clip before her death, posted on Aug. 22, Pardazi spoke about Tetris and skydiving.

The bombshell had also previously participated in the Miss Canada beauty pageant, making it to the semifinals.

Pardazi’s friends and family were devastated over her death.

“I thought it was a joke,” Pardazi’s close friend Melody Ozgoli told Barrie Today. “It has been a couple of days, and I still can’t believe it.”

She described her late pal as “adventurous and always trying new exciting stuff,” adding that “skydiving was supposed to be another fun adventure for her.”

Another friend, Kim Sepanlou, called the deceased “one of the bravest girls” she knew.

“Whenever we saw her, we knew we were in for an adventure because she didn’t like letting herself, or the people closest to her, get bored,” she told CTV News.

"I thought it was a joke," Pardazi's close friend Melody Ozgoli said regarding the bombshell's death. "It has been a couple of days and I still can't believe it."
