A TikTok influencer and beauty queen from Toronto, Canada, has died after skydiving on her first solo course last weekend.

After the accident, the woman was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The skydiving facility also said in its statement that Pardazi “was a welcome recent addition to the skydiving community” and “will be missed among the student’s new friends and fellow jumpers at Skydive Toronto Inc.
“The Skydive Toronto Inc. team was deeply affected by this accident as they have been refining their student training program for over 50 years,” the release said.
Pardazi was a TikTok influencer with more than 95,000 followers. In her videos, she discussed a range of topics, including self-esteem, relationships, makeup, and animals. Pardazi talked about skydiving in her latest video dated Aug. 22.
