Tanya Pardazi, 21, fell to her death during her first solo skydive in Toronto, her friends calling her “the bravest girl”
After a terrible skydiving accident, a 21-year-old Canadian TikTok influencer from Toronto lost his life.
Tanya Pardazi died on August 27th while jumping in Toronto at Skydive Toronto.
“The skydiver dropped a swiftly spinning primary parachute at a low altitude without the time/altitude necessary for the backup parachute to expand,” the skydiving facility stated in a statement posted on Facebook.
Despite not giving her identity, the skydiver has subsequently been recognised as Pardazi, a University of Toronto philosophy student, according to CTV. Pardazi had more than 95,000 followers as a TikTok influencer.
She had recently completed a solo lesson at Skydive Toronto, and, according to CTV, this was her first solo jump.
Her friend Melody Ozgoli told the publication, “She truly enjoyed every second to the fullest.” “The biggest surprise to us is this. Processing this is quite difficult. Even after a few days, we still find it hard to believe.”
Another acquaintance, Kimia Sepanlou, dubbed Pardazi among the bravest females. She never liked to allow herself, or the people closest to her, become bored, so whenever we saw her, we knew we were in for an adventure. Everyone she met had nothing but praise for her.
Pardazi’s pals informed CTV that she had previously advanced to the semifinals of a Miss Canada pageant.
In their statement, Skydive Toronto also stated, “The student’s new friends and fellow skydivers at Skydive Toronto Inc. will mourn the jumper, who was a welcome recent addition to the skydiving community. This disaster has had a significant impact on the Skydive Toronto Inc team since they have spent more than 50 years perfecting their student training programme.”
According to the facility, it is helping the South Simcoe Police Service with its investigation.
A request for comment from PEOPLE was not immediately answered by Skydive Toronto.
In a press release distributed on Sunday, the South Simcoe Police Service verified the occurrence.
The University of Toronto Scarborough cheering squad also uploaded a photo of the deceased social media sensation having fun on vacation in Paris as part of their homage to the late celebrity.
Tanya Pardazi was “one in a million,” the caption continues, and she will always be a part of our team and in our hearts.
Additionally, condolences flooded Pardazi’s Instagram page.
One friend commented on a pin posted in 2019 under the post, “Peace be with you, lovely daughter. I’m so happy I finally got to meet you! That such a lovely soul has left the earth makes me sad. You stood out among others. One person continued, “You were honestly one of the most real and loveliest beings I’ve ever encountered. Fly high. T., in my thoughts. Lie down in paradise”
Another close friend said, “lovely Tanya Oh, how mature you were, how much of an influence you had on others. Every day I feel heartbroken not having you here. Sweet baby, you are very loved and are constantly in my thoughts.”
