Woman Falls 80 Feet After Performing Yoga Pose for Selfie

A Mexican college student survived an 80-foot fall after slipping from her balcony.

Alexa Terrazas, 23, was doing an extreme yoga pose over the edge of her sixth-floor apartment balcony when she slipped and landed on the driveway of her building in the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon on Saturday.

An image of Terrazas before ship slipped went viral, showing the young woman hanging upside down in front of the balcony while supporting the entire weight of her body on the rail.

The young woman fell approximately at 1:10pm local time and was immediately tended to by paramedics from the Red Cross and the Nuevo Leon Civil Protection. 

She was taken to a local hospital and underwent 11 hours of surgery. 

Terrazas, who as of Monday afternoon was listed in critical condition, suffered fractures to both of her legs and arms as well as her hips and head. 

Family members took to social media to seek blood donations and prayers for the injured woman.
