Anna Leibenko, a former cheerleader for the Toronto Argonauts, a Canadian football team which is a part of the CFL, is in a coma after an accident that occurred during her European vacation last Friday.

During a month long European vacation with three friends, Anna visited Florence, where she celebrated her 24th birthday, as well as Greece. Lastly, the group hit up Croatia for Yacht Week, a traditional annual event where travelers rent yachts and explore caves, lagoons and islands of the Adriatic Sea. Anna and a group of friends were jumping off the boats at 6:00am — a 3-metre drop into the water, when she slipped and fell off of the catamaran. Anna hit her head on the stairs and landed in the water unconscious.
