Why I Always Ask For a First Floor Hotel Room

PART ONE - CHANTELLE


In 2012, Chantelle was vacationing on the Spanish Island of Magaluf. The 27 year old took an 80 foot plunge from her sixth floor hotel balcony. Miraculously, the aspiring model, exhibitionist, and general wild ass survived the fall with a broken jaw, and two broken legs.


Chantelle fell from her sixth floor balcony and landed at the side of the pool. Kind of a mood killer for the dozens of party goers who were swimming at the time

There are conflicting accounts of why Chantelle, a resisdent of England, fell off of the balcony. One report said the woman, who was no stranger to alcohol and drugs, saw a black spider in her suitcase and was running to escape the harmless bug. Another account says the beautiful Chantelle was trying to visit friends on the balcony just below her own and slipped. And the third account claims Chantelle had a loud and furious fight with her mother in the hotel and decided to take her own life. Who knows? All three accounts may be true.

Fortunately for Chantelle, she was unconscious upon impact. Paramedics scraped her off the pool deck and she spent two quality weeks in a local hospital.

Rods were placed in both of her lower legs and she was told it would be 18 months before she had a chance of walking again.

Chantelle returned home to England three weeks after the fall. She was able to bear weight on her legs seven months after the accident. This was considered a miracle considering the severity of her leg injuries.

Two years after the accident, Chantelle appeared to have recovered from the accident. She resumed her modeling and exhibitionist hobbies.





Under the facade of a beautiful woman, Chantelle was in daily pain from the injuries. She became addicted to heroine. The expensive drug habit led Chantelle to join a gang of thieves. in 2016, she was arrested for burglary and spent two years in prison.

Upon her release from prison, she resumed her use of heroine. She died of an overdose in 2019.



PART TWO - ALEXA


On a brighter note, let me introduce you to Alexa, a 23 year old American yoga nut who lives in Monterrey Mexico.



Alexa before her little yoga accident

Last August, Alexa was practicing 'extreme' yoga on her apartment balcony. In an amazing twist of fate, her apartment was on the sixth floor and approximately 80 feet from the concrete patio below.

Apparently, Alexa was a thrill seeker. Twisting herself into a pretzel on a floor mat does not fulfill her adventurous side. So she practices yoga while dangling over the side of her balcony rail.



Last known picture of Alexa before she did her full body face plant. She was studying holistic medicine in Monterrey. She believed that diet could heal almost any condition the human body faced. I am not sure that works as well with 110 broken bones

As you might have guessed by now, Alexa fell off her balcony, dropped 80 feet, and broke 110 bones including both arms and both legs. For those optimists reading this, the good news is (a) she lived and (b) there were 96 bones in her body she didn't break. Lucky girl!

At the hospital, Alexa underwent an 11 hour operation to deal with the most serious of her injuries. Doctors have told her she will not walk for at least 3 years.
