A Passion Play in Brazil
, enacted on Good Friday, has now turned deadly. The actor who played Judas was injured at the event, and died in hospital this past Sunday.
From the article:
Klimeck was re-enacting the scene in which Judas commits suicide in repentance for his betrayal of Jesus Christ.
Police are investigating the apparatus that was meant to support Klimeck. It appears the knot may have been erroneously tied.
