Brazilian model Caroline Bittencourt drowns in tragic accident
Brazilian model and television broadcaster Caroline Bittencourt drowned on April 28 when she and her husband were sailing on the coast of the state of Sao Paulo near Ilhabela.


A strong storm caused her to fall to the water, her husband Jorge Sestini jumped in after her to save her but the currents swept her away. Her body floated to the shore near Cigarras beach, the Sun reported.


Her family denied early media reports that she died while attempting to save her dogs from drowning. She did own dogs, a black spitz called Cookie and a white one named Canjica, the Sun reported, suggesting this might be the source of the confusion.
