UFC’s Macy Chiasson is Counting Herself Lucky after a Narrow Escape from Death

Macy Chiasson is counting himself lucky after escaping death when a construction crane collapsed onto her Dallas apartment building on Sunday. Chiasson, 27, had just come home when she heard what sounded like “a little bit of construction” and then a loud boom. One person died on the spot, and five were injured when the crane gave way in a sudden thunderstorm, cutting a massive gash through the building and pancaking a nearby parking garage.

Chiasson had only time to grab her phone and her dog’s leash before she started running out of the building. . She picked up her dog and ran into the lobby to find other tenants who had just made it out. She said the air quickly turned pitch black with debris and dust

She said,

“I saw this lady in a window, and she was just bleeding, shaking and crying, and when I looked past her, there was no apartment there.”

The crane stopped just short of the first-floor unit Chiasson moved into after relocating to Dallas to train at Fortis MMA. Chiasson thanked the UFC and apparel sponsor Reebok, who sent clothing as she prepares to head back to her native New Orleans. There, she’ll replace the identification she lost in the accident.

Officials had earlier issued a severe weather warning before the storm, and winds of up to 80 miles per hour were recorded, according to a Dallas NBC affiliate. An investigation is underway into the cause of the collapse. OSHA had cited the company that operated the crane for 18 safety violations over the past decade.

Chiasson, who in May picked up her fifth straight win with a second-round TKO of Sara Moras, has filed a lawsuit against the apartment building and the company that operated the crane.
