The attempt to perform an extreme yoga pose is disastrous for a Mexican student. Alexa Terrazas (23) hung upside down over her balcony but suddenly had to release her grip.
She fell from the sixth floor on Saturday and broke every bone in her body. Miraculously enough, the girl is still alive, but she is in critical condition.
The above photo was taken a few seconds before Terrazas tumbled down 24 meters. It shows how she balances carefree over the edge. According to her neighbors in the state of Nuevo Leon, the young lady often did breaknecks.
Terrazas had to undergo surgery of no less than eleven hours in the hospital. She suffered fractures on her legs, arms, hips, and skull. Family members called on social media to come and donate blood for her.
According to the Mexican newspaper ‘El Imparcial’ there is a chance that she will no longer be able to walk for at least three years.
An initial investigation showed that the balcony had no defects.
