Even though several people have died after posing for photos on great heights, I guess some folks still think it’s cool to risk your life for a shot. A woman from Mexico recently fell from 80 feet (24.3 m) while practicing “extreme yoga” on the balcony rail. As you can guess, she was doing it for the sake of a photo. She reportedly survived the fall, but she was seriously injured.

Mexican newspaper El Universal identified the woman as 23-year-old Alexa Terrazas. In the photo, she is seen dangling upside down on the balcony rail. She isn’t using her hands, but apparently keeping the balance using the weight of her legs.

Unfortunately, Terrazas fell from the sixth-floor balcony after the photo was taken. El Universal writes that she broke 110 bones and won’t be able to walk for years. She broke both of her legs and suffered fractures to her arms, hips, and head. She reportedly underwent an 11-hour surgery and will stay sedated for two weeks.

According to El Imparcial, the rail didn’t have structural damages, so the fall wasn’t caused by them. It was, apparently, a stunt that went terribly wrong.

This whole thing reminded me of the model who dangled over a 1,000ft skyscraper without safety gear just so she can pose for Instagram. Unfortunately, Terrazas’ story didn’t end that well. Still, she is lucky that she has survived, and I sincerely hope that she will recover as fast as possible and that she’ll never risk her life this way again.

I think it’s not worth it putting your life to risk just for a flashy Instagram photo. And if you’re gonna dangle from great heights to shoot photos – at least do it right.

    I’m pretty sure those who originally devised yoga would not encourage this.

      the yogis in India who invented Yoga could levitate so I doubt they worried about falling and going splat on the ground, no?

      Franco Kailsan not sure how bopping around on your knees is going to save them from a fall like that. ;)

    Btw, do we use their last risky Instagram picture for their obituary picture if they do indeed die?
    Did i cross some sort of line with this question?

    No, NO! PLEASE let them continue – it’s Darwinism! I actually FULLY encourage truly moronic ideas like these – helps weed out the truly idiotic… (otherwise we run the risk of them becoming presidents or prime ministers – and we’ve all seen how these end up!)

      Yeah … no that’s not how it works. They don’t do that stuff to get featured here. They only get featured here when things go bad.
