Tominey Reid, 21, fell seven storeys from her Melbourne balcony. Doctors say it was 'a miracle' she survived.  Here is her harrowing story… and the valuable life lesson for everyone


Instant regret, and then darkness.

The fact the 21-year-old Melbourne hairdresser lived to tell the tale is, her doctors agree, nothing short of a ‘miracle’.

Falls from a height of seven stories, roughly 21 metres, have a fatality rate of more than 90 per cent.

Although she suffered a gruesome list of injuries – including a snapped femur, shattered knee cap, torn ligaments and multiple brain bleeds – Tominey somehow survived without being permanently paralysed or suffering brain damage.

Now, for the first time, she has opened up about the terrible accident – and her determination to prove doctors wrong by walking again.

‘It was horrible, I immediately regretted it,’ Tominey told Daily Mail Australia, her voice catching at the memory.

‘I don’t remember the fall but I do remember slipping and it just… my heart just dropped.’
