Victoria’s Secret model Yfke Sturm is currently fighting for her life in hospital after being involved in a horrific jet surf accident while holidaying in Italy.

The model was reportedly riding the motorised surfboard last week, when she fell into the water and was hit as she swam back to shore.


    Yfke was airlifted to a hospital in Naples, and has remained in a coma after suffering a fractured skull and multiple spinal injuries. It’s believed she’s at risk of permanent paralysis.

    The 33-year-old Dutch model is based in London, and is currently in a relationship with French model Constance Jablonski, 24.

    She also gave birth to her first son, Alexander, just one month ago.

    As well as Victoria’s Secret, the model has worked with the likes of Calvin Klein, Chanel and Marc Jacobs.

    The blonde beauty began her modelling career aged 15, after winning the International Elite Model Look Contest in 1997.
