Officially she was permitted to work only three hours a week and was required to have medical insurance.

Vlada Dzyuba collapsed into a coma after a 13-hour fashion show in Shanghai, China, on Wednesday.

Pavel Mikov, a Kremlin human rights ombudsman in Perm, has taken on the investigation into her death.

Many young models are sent to China on such contracts, with less or no concern for their health and well-being.


'I didn't sleep myself and was calling her constantly, begging her to go to hospital'.

Further tests are being carried out to determine the official cause.

Oksana had been trying to get a visa to be with her daughter, but she failed to get it in time before she passed away.

"No one expected it to lead to such consequences", said Elvira Zaitseva, who set up the model's trip through her Perm modeling agency.

Vlada Dzyuba fell to the ground just moments before she was set to make her latest appearance on a Shanghai catwalk and never regained consciousness, the International Business Times reported.

It has been claimed the teen was on a "slave labour" contract and had been too afraid to seek medical treatment.

She admitted not personally checking the girl's contract and medical insurance. The head of the agency is quoted as saying, "We are now reaping what we have sown".

Police are investigating the death.
