Exotic Dancer Dies 1 Week After Fall In Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) — A 22-year-old exotic dancer has died one week after she was injured in a fall from a second-floor balcony while performing at a club in Cleveland.

MetroHealth Medical Center confirmed the death of Lauren Block of Richmond Heights on Wednesday.

The hospital relayed a family statement expressing appreciation for the community’s support and prayers and efforts to save her life.

A witness told police the woman was dancing for him early on Jan. 2 when she tried to perform a move or jump and fell over the rail head first at Christie’s Cabaret near downtown.

Calls to the club went unanswered Wednesday morning.
