A student from a New York dramatic arts college was recording herself as she practised for a school audition – but was upstaged by her own mum, who came crashing down through the ceiling.
Liz San Millan, who attends the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, was facing the camera as she sang Kindergarten Boyfriend from Heathers: The Musical, when she heard a crash in her parents’ home in Denison, Texas.
The shocked student turned around to see her mother’s leg dangling through a hole in the ceiling – along with a chunk of insulation and pieces of drywall.

“There was a loud noise … I turn around and all of a sudden, my mum’s leg is through the ceiling,” Liz told Good Morning America.
“My dad said, ‘Did you just fall through the ceiling?’ and (my mum) said, ‘You’re not going to ask if I’m OK?’ She was a little sassy about it, actually,” added the student, who posted the hilarious clip on TikTok, where it went viral.
“We laughed for like 30 minutes straight,” she told GMA.
“She was not against posting it, and thought it was hilarious.”
The musical theatre student told BuzzFeed News she was recording herself as practice for placement auditions when her mum tripped in the attic while looking for luggage.
“Right before she fell, you can see the irritation in my face due to her banging around while she knew I was filming,” Liz told the outlet. “There are wooden beams in the attic that you’re supposed to step on, but she tripped and stepped right into my ceiling.”
She said: “She was shocked at first, which is why she didn’t make any noise or move around, but she is completely fine! Not even a scratch.”
Her dad, Lance, has been working on fixing the hole in the ceiling.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the responses to my video,” Liz told BuzzFeed. “My mum has absolutely loved reading the comments and watching the duets.”
“Always love the background dancers,” one TikTok user wrote.
