Woman: I was paralyzed after doing sit-up at gym

(FOX NEWS) — A fitness fanatic was temporarily paralyzed from the neck down after a gym accident.

Marcelle Mancuso, a 23-year-old from Brazil, was doing an inverted sit-up at her gym in Rio when the strap holding her legs onto the elevated bench came loose and she slipped and fell head-first onto the floor.

An inverted sit-up involves performing an abdominal crunch on a gym bench which is raised on one end.
