Actor accidentally hangs himself

Sao Paulo - A Brazilian actor accidentally hanged himself during a scene in The Passion of Christ, in which he played Judas.

A hospital in Brazil's Sao Paulo state confirmed on its website the death of 27-year-old Tiago Klimeck.

An autopsy is being performed on Monday following his death the previous day.

The actor had been in a coma since the accident on Good Friday earlier this month in the city of Itarare.

Investigator Jose Victor Bacetti told the G1 news website Klimeck accidentally hanged himself during a scene in which his character Judas commits suicide.

About four minutes passed before anyone noticed, believing he was playing his role.

Police are examining the security apparatus that was meant to support Klimeck during the scene.

It's unclear if any charges will be filed.

    Ah this was very disappointing... Opened this article because I wanted to be entertained by the bible bashers :(

    Must say I'm a bit surprised. I expected 350 comments from Christianity bashers and haters. They would normally have a party on an article like this one.

      As a "non-believer", I would not dare make fun of this situation - someone lost his life, and others lost a friend/family member, I see no need to poke fun at anyone. Just because I do not believe in the Christian god does not mean I am heartless. Condolences to this man's family.
