Overworked Russian teen model dies of exhaustion in China

Sadly, the young model Dzyuba failed in the battle of life and said goodbye to the world after being in a coma for 2 days as she failed to regain the consciousness.

Tests are being carried out as to the cause of death. "I want to sleep".

She admitted not checking Valda's contract and if she had proper medical insurance.

"It must have been the very beginning of the illness ... and then her temperature shot up". After she passed out, she was rushed to the hospital but was already in a coma.

In addition, the 12-hours long fashion show held in the most populous city in China with a population of more than 24 million people - Shanghai.

A teenage Russian model died from exhaustion during a three-month modeling assignment in China, Fox News reported.

However, officially Dzyuba had has to work for only three hours a week.

The teen's death has raised concerns over the working conditions for young models and the way they are harshly exploited.

Her distraught mother wept: "She was calling me, saying "Mama, I am so exhausted". She had regular breaks while working.

Russian officials are now looking for answers from China, where Dzyuba was reportedly supposed to be limited to three-hour workdays.

Dzyuba's mother Oksana Dzuyba told NTV she was trying to get a visa to see her but did not get it in time. "Her workload was moderate compared with other models".

Some reports indicate Dzyuba experienced a spike in her body temperature prior to the ill-fated fashion show.

Elvira Zaitseva, head of the Perm modelling agency, said: "No one expected it to lead to such consequences".

"She was calling me, saying, "Mama, I am so exhausted".

The teen had been recruited by a prominent Chinese modelling agency, it is understood.

The Kremlin's human rights ombudsman in Perm, Pavel Mikov, said he was personally investigating the girl's death.

Dzyuba's manager in Russia, Dmitry Smirnov, has not yet commented on her death.
