Teen survives 35-foot drop from Tuxedo cliff

Posted: Updated:

A New Jersey teen fell 35 feet, head first, while cliff jumping with friends in Tuxedo last month.

The teen, who asked that News 12 not share her name, survived the drop with multiple broken bones, internal injuries and a concussion. Her injuries required surgery and nearly two weeks in the hospital.

Doctor Sara Dayal treated the teen in Hackensack Hospital's trauma unit.

Though she survived, the teen says she has a doctor's appointment -- or two -- every single day. Her grandmother created a GoFundMe page to raise money to cover medical expenses.
