Mika sister 'critical' after plunge

Mika's sister is critically ill in hospital after falling onto railings

The sister of pop star Mika is critically ill in hospital after falling from a window on to railings, it has been reported.

Paloma Penniman, 28, fell 50ft from the third-floor window in Kensington, west London, yesterday morning after she lost her balance while sitting on a ledge, The Sun reported.

It is believed firefighters had to cut a section of the railings before Ms Penniman was taken to hospital with them still in her, the newspaper said.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called to an address at 5.15 (yesterday) morning after reports a woman was impaled on railings after falling from a window."

A spokesman for Mika, 27, said: "Paloma had a serious accident. She is in a critical but stable state. The family have asked for privacy at this time."

You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
