A UK health worker, Deméi Tito, 27, cheated death after slipping 13 ft from a bridge before landing with her face on a concrete floor.



The accident happened after she had sat down to ‘take a moment’ and look at the view in Ealing, west, London.

When she got up, she put her hands down on what she thought was part of the bridge but lost her balance, falling onto the stone path below.



Before falling, she had been on her way to visit a friend, who came to look for her when she didn’t arrive as planned on June 24.







She says she woke up covered in blood and had to have an emergency jaw operation after knocking out her front teeth.



Her friend found her by the River Brent below Hanwell Bridge and helped her walk to a nearby Accident and Emergencies ward..



X-ray scans of her injury show how Deméi’s jaw cracked in half, leaving her in need of reconstructive and cosmetic work likely to cost £12,000.

Deméi, from Ruislip, West London, said: ‘I’m lucky to be alive.

‘I could have landed on my chin and my neck could have snapped. It may have been a totally different outcome for me and it may be for other people if they’re not careful.



‘I’ve always been told I have a really nice smile and it was something that was one of my favourite things about myself.’


The accident happened at around 9pm, after she had been to watch a rugby match in a local bar with friends.


‘I had a couple of drinks – two pints of cider and a couple of Jägerbombs – before I left,’ she said.


‘It wasn’t an extortionate amount, I’d had enough to not be sensible but I definitely still had my wits about me.Latest Post
