In a matter of seconds around 3:30pm Friday, a tragedy unfolded at a downtown bar.

Cleveland police say a 20-year-old woman fell from an inside balcony of Spirits Restaurant & Bar on West 6th Street.

It turned out to be a life threatening fall.

The woman’s injuries were serious enough that EMS rushed her to MetroHealth Medical Center for emergency surgery.

She was still listed in critical condition Friday night..

Police are saying there is nothing to indicate she was pushed.

The Cleveland Fire Department and building inspector closed the crowded bar to look into what they said may be "unsafe conditions," while police are still looking into what exactly what may have called her to fall.
