A blond police officer in Ukraine, has died after getting tuberculosis from a suspect during an arrest, according to police in Kiev.
35-year-old Arina Koltsova has died following complications from tuberculosis after a suspect spat in her face during an arrest several months ago.
Koltsova had no idea that the suspect, who was not identified, had tuberculosis, and she did not seek treatment until she collapsed.
She was rushed to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Her partner, Mikhail Kindrakevich, said that she was fed with IV and she underwent chemotherapy.
She suffered malnutrition, and she eventually died as a result of the tuberculosis. Koltsova quickly gained many followers on social media sites after people shared her photos on the Internet.
Koltsova posted many photos of herself on Facebook, posing in her clothing and police uniform.
