Woman does handstand-falls from balcony

Orlando, Florida - Authorities say a 20-year-old woman who tried to do a handstand on an apartment balcony plummeted 15 feet to the ground and died of her injuries.

The incident happened Thursday evening near the University of Central Florida Campus in Orlando.

Authorities say Jessica Ashley Hawkins of Alabama was visiting her boyfriend and friends before starting classes at the University of Alabama later this summer.

She had apparently been teased about wearing pajamas before she walked out on a balcony and tried to do a handstand.

Authorities say Hawkins had been drinking earlier in the evening, but it was not clear if alcohol was a factor in her death.
