Hanna Gavios, a New York City woman, fell 150 feet off a cliff in Thailand as she tried to escape a sexual assault.
The 23-year-old is undergoing treatment for a severe spinal injury due to the fall.
Gavios was vacationing as she scrambled away from a tour guide, according to the New York Daily News. The guide, who the Daily News identified as 28-year-old Apai Raingworchai, made sexual advances on the young tourist, causing her to panic and run from him.
