(Newser) – An Argentine woman threw herself off a 23rd-story hotel balcony, landing on a cab and totaling it, the AP reports—and somehow managed to survive. The woman, reportedly 30 years old, was rushed to a nearby hospital with broken ribs and internal bleeding. However, despite her 330-foot fall, she is now in stable condition.
