A 24-year-old woman drowned after allegedly slapping her neck on the edge of the bath and paralyzing herself before slipping through the water in a watery accident.
The incident took place in the apartment where the victim, identified as Flavia, lived with her friend and his family in the city of Deva in the western Romanian country of Hunedoara.
The young woman was said to have been in the flat alone when the incident occurred, and is supposed to have poked her legs in the bath.
Her boyfriend found her unconscious in the bathtub when she returned to the flat.

He immediately called the emergency services that appeared on the scene and tried to resuscitate the 24-year-old, but to no avail.
She was reportedly found without any sign of violence on her body and is believed to be unconscious in the bath.
Police spokesman Bogdan Nitu told the local media: "A criminal case has been opened and the circumstances behind death will be determined."
Speculation that she used an illegal substance before taking a bath has not been confirmed and the results of the obstruction are expected to shed more light on her physical condition at that time.
Miss Ioana lived with her friend's family in Deva, Romania. She reportedly hit her neck on the edge of the bath and slipped under water
Her brother said on social media: & I know that you are all waiting for the results of my sister's autopsy.
& # 39; The conclusion of a preliminary investigation is that she drowned after disappearing below the surface of the water.
Nek Her neck touched the edge of the bath and paralysis was caused by the damage to the nerve fibers in her spinal cord.
& # 39; She effectively drowned in herself without being aware or feeling pain. God rests her soul. & # 39;
The investigation continues.
