Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BRI­TISH woman is fight­ing for her life af­ter she fell on a dance floor at a Greek night­club and a 15-stone gas can­is­ter top­pled from the bar onto her face.

In­voice clerk Lau­rie Jay Bal­four, from Edling­ton, S Yorks, was par­ty­ing with friends two days into her hol­i­day in Zante when the freak ac­ci­dent hap­pened.

The 25-yearold ( above) is now in a coma af­ter be­ing air­lifted to hospi­tal in Athens, where medics per­formed emer­gency brain surgery to save her life.

Ms Bal­four had just gone onto the dance floor with pals at a club on the La­ganas Strip party zone when she fell.

She dis­lodged a ni­tro­gen gas cylin­der which her friend said was just ‘perched’ on the bar.

Wit­nesses said that there was so much blood pour­ing from Ms Bal­four that it looked like “a mur­der scene”. WHEN try­ing out a new pen, 97 per cent of peo­ple write their own name.
