TikTok influencer Tanya Pardazi dies in skydiving incident in Toronto
According to reports, a TikTok influencer passed away while skydiving in Toronto because her reserve parachute did not have sufficient time to inflate when she pulled the emergency release.
Tanya Pardazi, age 21, who had more than 100,000 followers on TikTok, passed away on August 27 during her first solo dive after finishing a school with Skydive Toronto. Tanya had amassed a large following on the social media platform.
She had also competed in a prior iteration of the Miss Canada pageant, in which it is reported that she competed well enough to advance to the semi-finals.
According to the website for the skydiving facility, students are expected to finish a course that covers “all of the essentials required to safely complete your first skydive” before they are allowed to make their first jumps from 4,000 feet in altitude.
In a statement posted on Facebook, the institution acknowledged the passing of a student who was 21 years old, but they did not mention Pardazi by name.
According to the statement, a student majoring in philosophy “launched a rapidly rotating main parachute at a low height without the time or altitude required for the reserve parachute to inflate.”
According to the further information provided in the announcement, “The jumper was a welcomed recent addition to the skydiving community and will be missed amongst the student’s new friends and fellow jumpers of Skydive Toronto Inc.”
Due to the fact that they have been honing their student training program for more than 50 years, the staff at Skydive Toronto Inc. has been tremendously impacted by this accident.
The cheerleading squad from the University of Toronto wrote a statement on Instagram in which they referred to Ms. Pardazi as “one in a million” and said that she would “forever be a part of our team and in our hearts.”

Her close friends said they “cannot believe” she has died away because she lived her life to the “fullest” possible extent.
She really did live every second to the fullest, according to her childhood friend Melody Ozgoli, who spoke to CTV News Toronto.
“This comes as the greatest surprise to us. It is quite challenging to comprehend. Even though it’s been a few days, neither of us can get ourselves to believe it.
