An exotic dancer decided to twerk for a gobsmacked audience although she had just broken her jaw after falling from a 15ft pole.
Genea Sky was performing at a gentlemen’s club in Texas when she clambered up the tall pole to entertain the regulars.
However, her stunt didn’t go according to plan and she soon fell down, smacking the floor beneath her. In the process of falling down, Genea suffered a series of injuries, including breaking her jaw.
A Twitter user managed to capture the footage and shared it online, where viewers were shocked to see the exotic dancer getting back up to finish off her routine by twerking.

Despite being in a lot of pain, Genea somehow managed to keep up the routine but acknowledged afterwards she was in a horrendous amount of pain.
She has since revealed that she had to undergo surgery after “pretty much” breaking her jaw in the fall.
Genea also managed to break some of her teeth, sprain her ankle and she needed stitches on her chin.
She took to social media to thank everyone who had been supportive through a clip since the footage of her falling had gone viral.
She said: “I’m getting a lot of messages asking me if I’m okay and all this stuff, so I decided to update everybody and let them know what’s going on.
“I pretty much broke my jaw and I have to have surgery on it tomorrow.
“I broke some teeth, and I got a sprained ankle… And I got some stitches.
“But aside from that, I’m good. I have no broken limbs, I walked away myself. I got up right after it happened, and I’m just really overwhelmed by all the messages and everything.
“I’m so thankful for all the positive messages I’ve been getting and all the love. It really means a lot.”
Genea appeared emotional during the clip she shared, saying that she had struggled since the accident but she acknowledged it “could have been worse.”
She added: “I am having a hard time, but I am okay, and I’m gonna be okay.
“It’s just a really humbling experience to just be alive, I’m really thankful for that. That’s just what’s most important to me at this very moment.”
Since the accident, one of Genea’s friend has taken to GoFundMe to help her pay for her medical expenses. So far, $15,000 has been raised of the $20,000.
“My friend Genea was in a horrible accident while she was working,” Ayana Knowles wrote in the GoFundMe description.
“She now has a fractured jaw, broken teeth, and a sprained ankle. Her job does not cover the expenses of her medical bills.
“Since she sustained such serious injuries, she will be out of work for an extended period of time.
“Any donations towards her surgeries would be helpful and appreciated! Thank you all in advance.”
