    But she didn’t leap out far enough and instead repeatedly smashed into the rock face before plummeting into the water.

    Ms Brotsky shattered both of her heels and fractured a vertebra in her spine. Doctors spent nine hours battling to save her left foot which ‘split’ in half.

    Her family forked out $20,000 to fly her home to Boston, Massachusetts, where her foot turned black thanks to an infection from the water.

    Miraculously, despite being warned she might never walk again, she has made a full recovery. And even did another cliff jump in Hawaii recently,‘according to New Nation USA.
