Stripper Falls From 20-Ft High Pole, Continues Dancing Despite Broken Jaw & Sprained Ankle

Pole dancing is one of THE MOST difficult art forms there is and I have immense respect for anyone who pursues it! It involves a combination of dance moves and acrobatics centred around a pole and required immense physical strength and balance. Hence, a pole dancer not just needs to train very hard to gain the required core strength but also has to sign up for extremely damaging accidents that might occur while they are up on the pole.

Speaking of which, a professional stripper at a Dallas-based club recently had a horrific accident in which she fell from a 20-feet high pole while she was performing, reports The Indian Express.

A video captured the terrifying moment in which the woman landed face-first on the stage. However, the woman kept on dancing despite the fall and as Mail Online reported, she kept going despite suffering major injuries.

It was later discovered that her injuries included a broken jaw, sprained ankle, and chipped teeth.

People on the internet are shaken by the incident. Many took to the comment section to laud the woman’s spirit and courage for while others wished her a speedy recovery. Have a look:

The stripper, Genea Sky, later took to her Instagram to post a video giving people a head’s up about her health. She notified them about her injuries and a surgery which was required to get her jaw fixed. She mentioned that the approximate amount required for the surgery was 20K USD (14 lakhs INR approx).

A friend of Genea’s went on to create a crowd-funding page asking the public for help in covering Genea’s medical expenses. Surprisingly, hundreds of people came forward and contributed to the cause. They have successfully raised 29K USD (20.6 lakh INR) until now!

It is disappointing how clubs encourage such dangerous and life-threatening acts in the first place. We hope there comes a time when club-runners have a change of heart and necessary precautions are taken to stop such incidents from occurring any further.

Till then, we wish the woman a speedy recovery!
