[Updated at bottom. Lauren Block died from her injuries.]
Stripper Lauren Block (photos below) is fighting for her life after a lap dance went seriously wrong. The Cleveland, Ohio brunette beauty had a mishap while performing and ended up falling head first off a 15-foot balcony.
2013 is not starting out to be a good year for Block, whose life hangs in the balance. On Wednesday she was performing at Christie’s Cabaret in Cleveland, Ohio and things seemed to be going along just fine until she decided to try something a little difficult and different. According to the police and eye-witness Pasquale Storino, who was the man that Lauren was giving a lap dance to at the time of the accident, the stripper attempted to do a very tricky move that went seriously wrong. She fell over the balcony head first and is now in serious condition.
A police officer released the below statement regarding what happened and what Pasquale had to say about it to Fox 8 News, the local Fox affiliate station for Cleveland.
“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.”
As for her current condition it is being reported that she suffered major head trauma and is in critical condition. There have not been an specific details regarding her condition but any kind of head injury is always a bad thing.
There isn’t very much known about Lauren in general. She was born and raised in the Richmond Heights section of Cleveland, Ohio and currently still resides in that area. Although she has a Facebook page, which you can check out here, it is not informative at all. Her about section is pretty bare and there are only two pictures of her on her page. It certainly seems like she doesn’t use the social media site that much at all. I looked her up on Twitter and even though there are a number of accounts under the same name I believe this one is her.
