Miss World Finalist Hospitalized for Potentially Fatal Infection

Miss World Infection

Miss World finalist 2o year old Maria Bridi da Costa, had her hands and feet amputated after contracting a virus that could have been fatal.

Initially when she fell ill on December 30, 2008 she was diagnosed with kidney stones.  However, she had an infection known as Septicamia set in her limbs which cut off her circulation thus resulting in amputation.

Maria’s boyfriend Thiago Simones told sources “We are all absolutely distraught and are just praying now that she can pull through.”
