Former Miss Teen Universe Lotte van der Zee has died after suffering a fatal heart attack on a ski trip.

The Dutch-born beauty was only 20-years-old.

She fell into a coma following the cardiac arrest while on holiday in Westendorf, Austria, with her family.

The beauty queen, who won the prestigious pageant in 2017, died on Wednesday at a hospital in Munich.

Her parents broke the news on Instagram.

Posting an image of her from the ski trip, they wrote: "Our pearl, our everything passed away on Wednesday evening March 6th at 22:47. It is incredibly surreal that our dearly beloved Lotte is not around us anymore.

"Our hearts are truly broken. We would like to thank you all again for all the support and heartwarming messages.”

Her parents revealed that Lotte had been out with friends the night before her heart attack but that she had returned "cheerfully and without health complaints."

But she did not appear for breakfast and when her parents went to check on her they found her ill in bed. Tragically, she suffered a cardiac arrest later that day.

She was resuscitated by her mother and rushed to a nearby hospital where she was placed in a medically induced coma.

The stunning model was then transferred to a specialist hospital in Munich where she suffered organ failure, according to reports.

Her family revealed that tests are still being carried out to determine what caused Lotte's heart attack.
