Twenty-three-year-old Alexa Terrazas, who studies health and nutrition at Tecnológico de Monterrey, slipped from the balcony railing last Saturday and landed on the pavement outside her apartment in the northeastern state of Nuevo León, the Post reported while quoting local media outlets.
The college student had reportedly performed similar death-defying poses on the the guardrail before but nearly died after falling and suffering fractures to her legs, arms, hip 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, Terrazas remained in critical condition. Doctors said they believe it could take up to three years for the 23-year-old to walk again.
