Charles DeVoe, (28) a top male model who spent a month in a coma after a surfing accident has died.
He was pulled from the ocean in Rockaway, New York, after his ankle strap became snagged on a wooden pole.
DeVoe had been under the water for several minutes before rescuers managed to cut him free on November 12.

After the accident he was taken to the New York-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center, where his family remained with him for the past month. He died last Friday.

Mr DeVoe was from Philadelphia but moved to New York in 2004 to pursue a career in modelling after graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
He signed to Major Model Management and posed for fashion photography heavyweights like Bruce Weber, Steven Klein and
Mario Testino. His face graced the pages of magazines such as Details, GQ, Vogue Nippon, V Magazine, and Arena Hommes Plus.

'This was a tragic and senseless loss, a horrific accident that has deeply affected all that knew and loved and cared for him.
‘[He was] a lovely kid who was respected and loved by many.’
Mr DeVoe's body was cremated on Sunday in New York.
