CLEVELAND, OH — A woman is in critical condition after she performed a dance move inside a strip club that sent her headfirst over a second-story balcony.
The bizarre incident happened at Christie’s Caberet in The Flats, just after 1 a.m. Wednesday. That’s when 22-year-old Lauren Block was reportedly giving a man a lap dance on the club’s second floor balcony and unsuccessfully executed a complex dance maneuver.
The man on the receiving end of Block’s efforts 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.
Block ended up plunging 15 feet to the floor below, landing on her head. Witnesses say Block was lying motionless on the ground for several minutes with her face covered with blood. She was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center with major head trauma and is currently listed in critical condition.
Police said that when they first got the call, they were told Block had been thrown from the balcony. When they learned this was nothing more than a horrible accident, they decided not to continue their investigation or file any criminal charges. However, OSHA is investigating.
