Tanya Pardazi, who was 21 years old, died when she fell from the sky in Toronto during her first solo skydive. Her friends called her “the bravest girl.”
A Canadian TikTok influencer who was 21 years old and lived in Toronto died in a terrible skydiving accident.
Tanya Pardazi died on August 27 when she fell to her death while skydiving at Skydive Toronto.
The skydiving center said in a Facebook post, “The skydiver let go of the main parachute that turned quickly at a low altitude without giving the reserve parachute the time or altitude it needed to open.”
Even though the skydiver wasn’t named, CTV has since found out that she is Pardazi, a philosophy student at the University of Toronto. Pardazi was also a popular TikTok user with more than 95,000 fans.
She had just finished her solo class at Skydive Toronto, and CTV says that the fatal fall was the first time she jumped by herself.
Her friend Melody Ozgoli told the outlet, “She really lived every moment to the fullest.” “This is the most surprising thing to us. It’s hard to understand. Even though it’s been a few days, we still can’t believe it.”
Pardazi was called by another friend, Kimia Sepanlou “one of the most courageous girls. When we saw her, we knew we were in for an adventure because she didn’t like to let herself or the people closest to her get bored. Everyone who met her liked her a lot.”
Friends told CTV that Pardazi was also a semi-finalist in a Miss Canada contest.
In its statement, Skydive Toronto also said, “The jumper was a welcome new member of the skydiving community. The student’s new friends and fellow skydivers at Skydive Toronto Inc. will miss him or her. Since Skydive Toronto Inc. has been improving their student training program for more than 50 years, this accident has had a big impact on the people who work there.”
The facility said it is helping with the investigation by the South Simcoe Police Service.
People asked Skydive Toronto for a comment, but they didn’t answer right away.
In a release that was sent out Sunday, the South Simcoe Police Service said that the event had happened.
The cheerleading team at the University of Toronto Scarborough also paid tribute to the late social media star by posting a picture of her on vacation in Paris.
The caption says, “Tanya Pardazi will always be a part of our team and in our hearts. She was one in a million.”
