Before he died Sunday at the Hospital Santa Casa de Misericordia in Itapeva, the 27-year-old actor spent two weeks in a medically induced coma due to extensive brain injuries from a prolonged lack of oxygen, CNN reported Tuesday.
The mishap took place during a production of the play April 6 in Itarare. Klimeck was playing the role of Judas Iscariot, a biblical figure who commits suicide by hanging after betraying Jesus Christ.
CNN said Klimeck wore a harness under his robe during the play and investigators are looking into what went wrong.
