Nevada woman busts butt re-enacting scene from “Titanic”
Honolulu, HI – Hawaii State Park officials reported that a vacationing Nevada woman was injured on Sunday when she tumbled down the face of Diamond Head. The woman, who was identified as Teresita Rapier of Las Vegas, Nevada, escaped with only a bruised ego.
According to Park Ranger Daryle Rico, “As near as we can tell, she was doing one of those crazy “Look ma, no hands” poses while sitting on top of the observation deck.” Other witnesses claim Rapier was re-enacting the “I’m Flying!” scene from the film Titanic when she suddenly tumbled ass over tea kettle down the 761-foot mountain.
“My friend and I had a wager going as to whether or not Tess would bounce all the way down to the beach,” said hiking companion Attaz Plateros. “I lost 5 bucks though, because she only made it as far as the snorkel rental.”
Diamond Head is one of the most popular attractions on Oahu and claims an average of 15 tourists a year. “Most accidents are caused by parasailers who crash into the volcano,” claimed Rico. “But this is the first time we’ve had anyone injured while flying off the mountain.”
Surprisingly, Rapier sustained no serious injuries in her fall. “I guess I’m lucky that the only thing I keep hitting on my way down was my head,” said Rapier.
