Amputation For Brazillian Miss World Finalist Mariana Bridi da Costa
by Tashi Singh

A beautiful Brazilian model who is just 20-years-old has had her hands and feet amputated after falling ill with a severe urinary tract infection.

The 20-year-old, who contracted a urinary tract infection that turned into a potentially fatal infection, has lost both her hands and feet in order to save her life.

Mariana Bridi da Costa was a finalist representing Brazil in the Miss World contest and has made the national finals for the competition twice.

Mariana Bridi hospitalized in Brazil after falling ill with what was initially thought to be kidney stones, according to her boyfriend Thiago Simoes.

The name of the infection Bridi contracted is called Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterium, which can cause Septicemia. The model's legs had Septicemia, forcing doctors to amputate before it completely cut off her circulation.

We hope Mariana is holding up well and that her family and friends find strength during this difficult time. More photos here. Video here.
