On October 31st, 2015 Alina fell 60 feet while rock climbing in Yosemite National Park. The fall resulted in a fractured the L1 vertebra of Alina’s spine. The fall also broke her thumb, scapula, several ribs and collapsed her lung. Alina was rescued and flown by helicopter to Stanford Hospital, where surgeons fused five vertebrae of her spine. Alina was paralyzed from the waist down, and when she woke up sensation and function quickly started to return.
