LOS ANGELES—The family of British adult performer Carla Mai on Monday announced she had passed away.
In a statement posted to Mai's Twitter account @CarlaMai1 that had been updated by her sister, the family said, "As has already been announced our beautiful, quirky, one-off daughter, sister and friend sadly passed away at 4:47 p.m. on Monday 18th July 2016.
"If Facebook and Twitter comments are anything to go by her legacy she leaves behind are memories for friends and family alike that were lucky enough to share in her fun and enthusiasm for life and the loyalty shown to those she cared about. The family thank you for your sympathy and condolences as it gives a little comfort at this hard time."
Mai sustained severe head injuries in what was described as a "catastrophic fall" last week, her family said in an earlier post, but did not elaborate further about how the accident happened.

Sad news reach us all today and anyone who met Aimee will know how sad it is to know she lost her life today. My heart and love is with her closest friends and obviously her family. Rest in peace Aimee."
