Former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst has died after falling from a high-rise building in New York City on Sunday morning. She was 30 years old.
Cheslie, who was crowned Miss USA in 2019 was alone at the time when she fell and was last seen on a 29th floor terrace of the building, according to the NY Post.
Her family released a statement saying: “Her great light was one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength. She cared, she loved, she laughed and she shined.
“Cheslie embodied love and served others, whether through her work as an attorney fighting for social justice, as Miss USA and as a host on ExtraTV.
“But most importantly as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague — we know her impact will live on.”
Following her Miss USA victory, she worked as an attorney as well as a host on EXTRATV.
She used her win at the pageant to speak out about social and criminal justice reform.
May her soul rest in peace.
