Ms Samireh apparently fell from the hotel room balcony, landed on top of the glass roof the hotel’s spa at the back of the building, then bounced over the fence wall behind the property and into the vacant lot.

She suffered only a broken left leg in the dramatic fall.

Staff at the resort confirmed that Ms Samireh checked in to the hotel with a male friend on Friday.

“They went out together yesterday. Ms Jardeliza came back at about 10.30pm and the man came back at about midnight. Then about 20 minutes later the man rushed down to us and told us that Ms Jardeliza had fallen from their room’s balcony,” one staff member told the Gazette.

“Police nearby rushed to the scene and we found that Jardeliza wearing shorts and a spaghetti-string top, lying on the ground floor over the hotel wall,” the staffer said.
