For those of you that don’t believe stripping, pole dancing, etc can be hazardous, think again! Ohio stripper Lauren Block, 22, has died from head injuries sustained in gentlemens club Christie’s Cabaret. Block was entertaining a customer on the second floor of the club when she attempted a “jump-dance” move that misfired, the man getting the lap dance told police.
“He stated that she grabbed the rail, as he was facing away from the balcony, and she tried to complete some sort of jump-dance move, and accidentally went head first over the rail,” a Cleveland Police Department incident report said.
Lauren was in the hospital for about a week before she died from her injuries. Her parents released this statement:
Block’s family released the following statement:
“We would like to thank the community for their outpouring of support and prayers for Lauren. She … is an organ donor, and we hope this will enable her to save many lives and live on through others. We would like to express our gratitude to the staff at MetroHealth. They worked tirelessly to do all they could to save her life. We ask that the media respect our privacy during this difficult time. We know that she’s in God’s hands.”
