I don't think that turned out exactly as she planned.

ok WTF?

first off, how bad does your luck have to be? If she "jumped" then she wanted to die, now she can sue the cabbie!

if she "fell" ...how? and don't explain the mechanics of falling off a building to me.. how does one get into a situation of having an opportunity to fall from a building!

and second, slow news day? i mean half the stories posted here are of "celebs" or people who think they are, but TMZ has to post a story and a pic (which by the way isn't all that realistic... to fall from that height and not have ANY blood what-so-ever? doubtful) of a random woman who survived a fall in... wherever the hell it was! odd...

EPIC FAIL....really?!...look closely to the pic. how can her legs be on top of the cab while the car door is open and her head has no support whereas her arms are folded like she was relaxing?

When she gets the hospital bill she's really going to be depressed.

Yet somewhere someone who wants to live will trip over a crack in the sidewalk, hit their head and they're gone.

precisely my thoughts... looks like a pic out of a movie stunt!

she looks like a stunt doll, there's no blood anywhere, and the bystanders are just walking away, looking on like they can't understand what they're looking at!

maybe that's common practice around there, but here if someone falls 23 stories and lands on a cab, you can't get near enough to get a picture, the crowds are so thick!
