A former Miss Teen Universe model died recently on a Ski trip. She suffered a fatal heart attack the day before her 20th birthday.


Model Lotte van der Zee, from Holland, passed away earlier this week. She had suffered a massive cardiac arrest before going into a coma while on holiday in Westendorf, Austria with her family.

The beauty queen had won the prestigious pageant in 2017. She died on Wednesday at a hospital in Munich a day before her birthday.


Her distraught parents took to Instagram yesterday to break the news. They wrote a heartbreaking post saying:

"Our pearl, our everything passed away on Wednesday evening March 6th at 22:47. It is incredibly surreal that our dearly beloved Lotte is not around us anymore. Our hearts are truly broken. We would like to thank you all again for all the support and heartwarming messages."


They posted the message alongside a picture of their daughter wearing a red ski outfit and beanie hat. Her parents also spoke to the press about her passing.

They said Lotte had been out with friends the night before her heart attack. They added that when she returned "cheerfully and without health complaints."


The next morning, however, she did not come to breakfast and they went to check on her. They found her laying in bed feeling sick.

They revealed in their Instagram post that her symptoms "swiftly escalated in sudden cardiac arrest" later that day. She was resuscitated by her mother and rushed to a nearby hospital where they put her into a medically induced coma.

The young model was transferred to a specialist hospital in Munich. However, once there she suffered organ failure. Her family says tests are still being done to determine what caused Lotte's heart attack.
