A Mexican student experiences a fall of 80 feet after practicing an extreme yoga pose on the sixth floor of her building, reports the New York Post.
Twenty-three-year-old Alexa Terrazas, who studies health and nutrition at Tecnológico de Monterrey, pulled out of the balcony rail last Saturday and landed on the sidewalk outside her apartment in northeastern Leon Nuevo, according to The Post. Neighbors said they saw her perform an upside down position on her terrace before her fall.

A college student had performed similar deadly security poses before, but nearly died after falling and suffering fractures to his legs, arms, hips and head. She was taken to the hospital, where she underwent an 11-hour procedure that required doctors to "reconstruct" her legs.
As of Monday, Terrace was still in critical condition, the Post reported. Doctors said they thought it might take up to three years for the 23-year-old to walk again.
Meanwhile, people on social media have urged others to donate blood, even though the Terazas family said no need.
