Will ObamaCare Cover This Injury?

An unexpected occuptional hazard:

CLEVELAND — A woman was seriously injured after a bizarre incident inside a local strip club early Wednesday morning.
It happened at Christie’s Caberet in The Flats, just after 1 a.m.
According to police, 22-year-old Lauren Block, of Richmond Heights, was reportedly on the second floor of the club when she went over the balcony and landed on her head. . . .
[A] witness said he was getting a lap dance from Block on the second floor of the club when something went terribly wrong.
The reporting officer said this of the incident: “(The witness) stated that (the dancer) grabbed the rail, as he was facing away from the balcony, and she tried to complete some sort of jump/dance move, and accidentally went head first over the rail.”
Block reportedly fell 15 feet and suffered “major head trauma.”
She was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.

If Sandra Fluke can demand free contraceptives, surely strippers should be covered for major head trauma. Health care is a human right!

    It must be covered. She’s an empowered woman and such must get the finest care Obamacare can possibly give. As you know, there are much too few empowered wimyn in teh world, so she must be saved.
    Now, cough it up proles.

    That’s what happens when you give a lap dance to Clark Kent — that super erection will send you flying!

    That is an OSHA recordable injury. I think they need a safety consultation. I wonder what safety programs they have in place? Was she standing on something that made her higher than the guardrail? So she lifted her feet off the floor to do a gymnastics move? All is verboten.
