Models are Smart
I guess it's true when they say you can't have looks AND brains. Model, Tayana Simanava, almost met Jesus when she mistook the exit door on a bus for the door to the restroom.
Tatyana Simanava nearly became a tragic fashion victim yesterday - stepping off the runway of a moving bus and tumbling out the door onto the Gowanus Expressway.
The Russian stunner hit the pavement at 40 mph, smashing her arm, dislocating a shoulder, cutting her face and head - but somehow surviving the plunge.
"She's lucky she wasn't killed," said a police source. "She could have easily gotten run over."
The 21-year-old model had been traveling to a Staten Island photo shoot with other members of international agency Next Models, cops said.
She somehow got disoriented after stepping into a passageway outside the bathroom of the luxury bus.
"There was a door leading back inside the bus to her left, and one leading out of the bus to her right," said a traffic cop at the scene.
"I guess she got disoriented."
In place of rows of seats, the bus is fitted with changing rooms, a kitchen and an open living area - to where Simanava was trying to return.
Instead, she plunged out a door on the driver's side of the bus, narrowly avoiding being struck by the rear wheels of the vehicle.
Poor thing. All she wanted to do was snort a few rails in peace and instead she ate rails.
In all seriousness, our thoughts and prayers are with her brain...because clearly that's her major asset.
