    Gymnastics stunt on hotel balcony leaves woman dead



    A Cape Coral woman attempting to do a gymnastic stunt on the railing of a second-floor hotel balcony died after she slipped and fell to the ground early Sunday morning.

    Lee County sheriff’s deputies do not expect foul play in the death of Molly Jerman, 23, of 1040 SW 20th Ave., who investigators said got a room at the Best Western in North Fort Myers with her friend Saturday night.

    Todd Evans, 33, of 2043 Valley Drive, North Fort Myers, said after he and Jerman went into the room, she headed for the lanai, where she yelled out, “Watch to see what I can still do,” according to police reports.

    That’s when Jerman attempted a hand stand on the balcony railing, Evans said. She then slipped off the railing and fell into the patio below. Jerman was pronounced dead at the hospital.

    Oh my Lord! Sounds more like something an eleven year old would do! This poor family, and her friends!

    Tragically, she must have missed the part about 'don't try this at home'.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
