A few female graduates from the University of Zululand tried to keep their balance as they made their way down a red carpet.

In a video shared by @mayenzizulu on TikTok, the ladies wear high heels at their graduation ceremony as they make their way down a steep slope. The walk proved quite a struggle as one woman wearing a stunning black dress lost her balance and tumbled at the knees of one of the university's social media team members.

"It's not compulsory to wear heels to your graduation ceremony, guys."

@vuyani___8 cracked a joke:

"No, guys. They are falling because they are tired from studying."

@naomimetty realised something during their laughs:

"I was laughing so hard, and then I remembered I don't have a degree."

@ladypeacent20 also poked fun in the comment section:

"Sometimes it's not a problem of heels. It's just being overwhelmed, and suddenly you feel dizzy. It's happened to my sister. She is always in heels."

Woman falls from a table at groove

At the beginning of the month, Briefly News reported about a woman having a lovely time at a groove and had her night cut short after falling.

In the clip uploaded by @dah.the.mua, people enjoy the groove and sit in their chairs with alcohol on the table. However, one lady decided to get on the table and dance. After tumbling off the table, the lady tried to balance with another woman, presumably standing on a chair.
