Mistake #1... instead of doing downward facing dog, she should have learned upward facing cat.

Which begs the question of just who will pay for all of medical care, surgeries, rehab, medications, on going treatment for all of the after effects that will haunt her for the rest of her life.
I'm not up to speed on the ins & outs of health insurance in Mexico, but something tells me someone else will be footing the bill for her dumb move. At the very least, she'll be in debt forever.

They should take lots of before and after fall pictures to post along all balconies in multi family buildings.


This is what happens if you survive
Don't do yoga and take a dive

Like most of y'all, I never made a stupid decision when I was in my 20s. Therefore, I have no sympathy for anyone who did LOL

I'm sure we've all made mistakes and dumb moves at some point in our lives. But this, and other stunts like it, are just over the top stupid. People who harm themselves (or others) doing things like this deserve all the criticism they get IMO.

Sad but she will never fully recover from that. Not even close.

They will probably also race-bend and orientation-bend the movie version of her character.

Plenty of youtubers out there doing backflips and other crazy stunts on sheer cliffs etc.

The annual death rate for the wing-suit\base jumper extremists is also quite high. The guy that parachuted into the london olympics died it's like the extreme deep free divers.

I've sure made a lot of mistakes. Even made the national news, although my name was kept sub rosa due to 'ongoing investigations'. Long story but I wouldn't/couldn't/didn't hurt a fly, I was just the alibi ...

I also suffered the consequences but honestly, the whole time I KNEW I was gambling & I got away thousands of times & the one & only time they thought they caught me; the arresting officer was found guilty of misconduct.

You weigh the pros & the cons. I played with fire to be sure but one thing I wouldn't have done would be to play on a 6th floor balcony railing like it was playground equipment.
