Teen girl somehow survives insane fall off a cruise ship railing, and it's all caught on Snapchat.

She used to be an ordinary 17-year-old. Then, she went on a cruise ship with her friends for spring break this year, and became an Internet superstar.

She and her friends were making their way down to a club on the ship when they decided to "rail surf" the rest of the way.

"I was completely sober," Schwenker told BuzzFeed, explaining, "I only fell because I was stupid and let go with my hand which you can't do when you're railing surfing."

Luckily for us, Annie's friends had the foresight to capture her epic fall on Snapchat and share it with the world even when Annie asked them to delete it.

The 9-second clip, in which Annie falls backward over the railing and almost definitely dies (but doesn't die!) has gone viral, with tens of millions of views on Facebook. It's impossible to stop watching.

You'll be glad to know Annie only fell one flight (no biggie) and was totally fine, aside from a fractured rib and bloody lip. And who wouldn't trade a fractured rib for brief Internet fame?

Annie, who got back up and danced the night away before heading to a hospital the next day, seems to be cool with the attention:
