A 22-year-old stripper is fighting for her life after she fell head first off a 15-foot balcony while performing a lap dance.
The unnamed woman suffered major head trauma after plunging from the balcony of Christie’s Cabaret in Cleveland, Ohio, at around 1am today.
The customer who was receiving the erotic dance told Cleveland police the employee attempted a tricky dance move before she tumbled over the railing on the second floor of the strip club.
‘He stated that she grabbed the rail, as he was facing away from the balcony, and she tried to complete some sort of dance jump/dance move, and accidentally went head first over the rail,’ the reporting officer said, according to Fox 8 News.
The young woman fell 15 feet and suffered ‘major head trauma.’
She was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she is in critical condition.
Police said two men who witnessed the incident fled the bar as soon as the woman fell off the balcony.
Another man who was in the club at the time told NewsChannel5 that he didn’t see it happen, but saw the victim motionless on the pavement afterwards.
He added that her face was covered in blood and said he saw the two men flee.
Despite the suspicious behavior, police said they were not treating this as a criminal case. They said they have viewed video surveillance inside the club but it was inconclusive.
