A 22-year-old dancer, Georgia Brodrick, has recovered after she flinged herself off an eighth-storey balcony in a desperate attempt to escape her abusive boyfriend.
According to the Daily Mail Australia, Brodrick called her dad on the morning of July 17 from her apartment in Melbourne, Australia, begging him to come and pick her up.
She had just found out her boyfriend had cheated on her despite his physical abuse towards her.
When she waited for dad and he didn’t make it on time she jumped off the balcony and landed on a fence, with her body bouncing into a nearby ditch.
She was rushed to the hospital where she was reportedly put into an induced coma for emergency surgery .
Her injuries were so bad that doctors gave her just a 10% chance of survival, as she spent three weeks on the trauma ward being fed through a tube.
She miraculously survived, although she has no memory of the traumatic moments before she jumped. She’s with her family as she recuperates.
“He made me feel like he was the only person who truly loved me.”
