After more than a month in a coma caused by a surfing accident in the Rockaways, male model Charles DeVoe died Friday. The 28-year-old, who worked with hotshot photographers like Bruce Weber, Steven Klein and Mario Testino, had been in a coma since November 12 when he spent several minutes underwater after the ankle tether connecting him with his surfboard snagged on a pole. DeVoe had been living and working in the city since 2004 (you can see some of his work here). Though it had appeared for awhile that he might recover, his health took a turn for the worst in the past week. The Philadelphia-native's parents were with him until the end.
