It’s one of those deaths that are just simply tragic, but kinda so ridiculous, you laugh.
22-year-old Lauren Block, a stripper at Christie’s Caboret in Cleveland fell from a second story stage while performing a lap dance. The man on the receiving end of the dance explained what he saw in the police report: “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,”
Block’s family has released a statement. “We would like to thank the community for their outpouring of support and prayers for Lauren. She has passed away but is an organ donor, and we hope this will enable her to save many lives and live on through others. We would like to express our gratitude to the staff at MetroHealth. They worked tirelessly to do all they could to save her life. We ask that the media respect our privacy during this difficult time. We know that she’s in God’s hands.”
Witness reports include that she wasn’t moving after the fall and was rushed to the hospital with severe head injuries and initially listed in critical condition, but later died from her injuries.
Now you feel bad for laughing.
