Former Miss Austria Ena Kadic died Tuesday from injuries sustained in a fall off of a mountain in Tyrol, Austria.

Ena Kadic Dies

Kadic, 26, had been jogging Friday when she fell of the side of the Bergisel mountain near Innsbruck. She was found severely injured on a platform overlooking the Sill River ravine by two students. Prior to losing consciousness, Kadic had also informed her brother of the accident.

The 2013 Miss Austria winner was eventually taken via helicopter to a local hospital, where she remained in critical condition until her death Tuesday.

It is unknown what exactly led to Kadic’s fall, but fatal accidents are not uncommon in the Austrian alps. Between May and September of this year alone, 115 people have died and another 2,385 people have been injured.

“It is with great sadness that we learn this morning of the passing of Ena Kadic, who represented Austria at Miss World 2013,” read a statement on the Miss World Facebook page. “After suffering an accident running along the Bergisel mountain, Ena has succumbed to her injuries.”

The statement continued, “Our deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of Ena, and we wish them strength in these sad times.”
