Student Falls From Balcony When Yoga Pose Goes Wrong
A woman has miraculously survived after falling 25 metres while trying an extreme yoga pose on her balcony railing.
Alexa Terrazas, 23, was posing for photos while performing the stunt, but slipped and fell from her sixth floor apartment.
A photograph has gone viral which shows the student just before the fall, which could have killed her.
She was rushed to a local hospital in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon on Satruday, where medics battled through 11 long hours of surgery.
In the image, she can be seen balancing upside down on the railing with her entire weight. She then slipped and fell down the six stories.
According to reports in local media outlet El Imparcial, doctors have said she might not be able to walk for three years. Doctors were left with the painstaking task of reconstructing her legs.
According to reports, this was not the first time Terrazas has been seen practicing yoga on the balcony. Neighbours have said that they have often seen the student trying out the dangerous stunts including using her balcony railing before.
The Nuevo Leon attorney general's office launched an investigation into the incident, which found no structural failings in the building or the balcony and determined that the fall was an accident, with no blame placed on the building or its management.
El Imparcial also reports that her neighbours claim they frequently saw Terrazas performing dangerous stunts on the balcony.
