The news of Sara Pegoraro’s sudden death began circulating on social media and through local media outlets on Wednesday, June 29.
According to early reports, the 26-year-old glamour model, who had over 15.8k followers on Instagram, suddenly collapsed into a ditch near an Aldi supermarket in Viale Della Repubblica and was rushed to Ca’ Foncello hospital on Friday, June 24.
After being treated at the hospital, the young woman was said to have taken some drugs for her pain.
