Liz San Millan from Texas was alone in her room, enjoying some privacy while she filmed herself practicing a song she'd be using for placement auditions coming up at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, where she's a freshman. As San Millan crooned her way through "Kindergarten Boyfriend" from "Heathers: The Musical," though, she was interrupted.
"There was a loud noise...I turn around and all of a sudden, my mom's leg is through the ceiling," she told Good Morning America.
Because her mother didn't just barge into her room through the door -- she fell right through the ceiling, bringing insulation and drywall along with her.
San Millan assured GMA that her mom was completely fine ("not even a scratch") and even got "a little sassy about it, actually" when her husband didn't immediately ask after her well-being once she extracted herself from the ceiling hole. She had been searching for luggage in the attic, San Millan told Buzzfeed News, when she tripped. Next thing she knew, she was hanging into her daughter's room.
"Right before she fell, you can see the irritation in my face due to her banging around while she knew I was filming," she said. "There are wooden beams in the attic that you’re supposed to step on, but she tripped and stepped right into my ceiling."
It's partly funny and partly terrifying. Imagine turning around and seeing a leg just limply dangling from your ceiling? I would have had a panic attack right there.
San Millan said her father is working on repairing the hole, but now I've got some fun ideas for the upcoming spooky season...
